Maui County Business Resource Center (MCBRC), an extension project of the County of Maui's Office of Economic Development (OED), serves as an entrepreneurial resource for new or existing business owners who need business assistance for operations within Maui County.
The center, located at 70 E. Ka'ahumanu Ave. (Maui Mall) in Kahului, was established to improve public access to government resources and increase the reach of nonprofit partners that provide business assistance and consultation.
A variety of classes will be offered at the center in January.
