With nearly 1,000 locations across the country, SBDC’s provide local businesses and entrepreneurs with the resources needed to succeed. SBDC Day is a national movement to help share the small business success stories and notable impact SBDC’s have fostered in communities nationwide.

In 2016, Hawaiʻi’s SBDCs provided consulting to 1,239 client businesses resulting in 77 new businesses started, 304 jobs created, and $19,800,620 in capital investments. Additional to consulting, 78 business trainings and workshops were provided.


“We are thrilled to locally celebrate our clients and continue to build awareness of the services we provide to build and strengthen Mauiʻs economy through small businesses,” said Wayne Wong, Maui Center Director of the HiSBDC. “We are blessed to be able to serve and impact the success of Maui Countyʻs small businesses.”
