With the successful completion of the May 2016 Maui Small Business Week‬ event, plans are now in the works for the county to take the reigns of future events.

The County of Maui has committed to plan, schedule, manage and organize the entire program for the 2017 Maui Small Business Week.

“We are glad that the County of Maui recognizes the benefits and opportunities that MauiSBW offers to Maui and to its local business community,” said MauiSBW voluntary organizers, who were at the helm of the event each year since 2014.

In 2014, under the leadership of volunteers from the Maui Business Brainstormers organization, MauiSBW offered nine free educational workshops and seminars presented by nine top-notch guest presenters and business subject-matter experts from the states of Hawai’I and California.

“A huge mahalo goes out to all of the 23 guest speakers who joined in to make the 2016 MauiSBW happen,” organizers said. “Based on the attendees’ feedback, the speakers delivered valuable information and education.”
