A total of 34 entrepreneurs graduated from the latest Core Four Business Planning course offered by Maui Economic Opportunity, the organization announced.

The 36-hour course provides instruction on how to write a business plan, and gain guidance on how to start, operate and grow a business.

During the course students also receive guidance from local commercial lenders who review plans and offer suggestions for improvement.

Students who successfully completed the course  received a Certificate of Achievement from the MEO Business Development Program at a celebration dinner held on August 19.
