Maui Economic Opportunity Business Development Center (MEO BDC) graduated 19 students from its Core Four Business Planning course on Oct. 23. At the graduation, the soon-to-be entrepreneurs were able to talk with Maui business bankers who had volunteered their time to review the students' business plans and provide additional guidance in operating a successful business. The graduating students received a Certificate of Achievement and a congratulations dinner.
