Fourteen entrepreneurs in training were included in the latest graduating class from the Core Four Business Planning course hosted by Maui Economic Opportunity, the organization announced.

The graduating students received a Certificate of Achievement and a congratulatory dinner during a ceremony held on Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014.

The Core Four Business Planning program is a 36-hour course on how to write a business plan. This includes compiling information on how to start, operate and grow your own business.

Students received guidance from local bankers who provided suggestions on how to improve their plans, and tips on what to expect from commercial lenders.
