Maui Business Brainstormers held its first Central Maui “Business in the Think Tank” on Tuesday, March 10, 2015, at the Maui County Business Resource Center, where SCORE Maui presented a projector to MBB organizers.

Since 2012, the nonprofit MBB has presented about 40 free events that required a powerful quality projector.

“Sometimes a projector became unavailable at the last minute and panic was necessary to produce a solution,” said MBB Organizer Grace Fung. “MBB organizers asked for projector sponsorship or hope a friendly member or government agency would lend theirs. Our new projector will reduce our stress and add to our confidence. We thank SCORE Maui and value very much the business vision and innovative mind of its counselor, Richard Kehoe.”

“It is worthy to join in and support their efforts,” added Kehoe. “On behalf of SCORE Maui, I am glad that my decision to support MBB with a projector will help the organizers to continue providing helpful resources for start-ups and growing businesses on Maui.”

Kehoe is also a CPA specializing in small businesses from start-up to sale.

“Due to the projector’s modern features, we can see other organizations reaching out to us to use it,” said Fung. “This is a chance for MBB raise some funds that will help to cover the unavoidable incidental expenses that often get covered by a member of the organizing team.
