The inaugural Maui Small Business Week (SBW) will takes place Monday to Friday, May 12 through 16, at the Makena Beach and Golf Resort. This event offers Maui County the opportunity to network, grow small businesses, create 21st-century jobs, drive innovation and increase Hawai'i's global competitiveness.
Educational workshops and seminars will be presented in morning and afternoon sessions each day. The presentations are no cost and without any sales pitch.
"We want to use education to strengthen Maui's economy and future employment opportunities," said Maui Business Brainstormers (MBB) organizer Grace Fung. "Guest subject matter experts are graciously donating their time and sharing their knowledge with the Maui small business community."
Small Business Week
Every year since 1963, National Small Business Week recognizes the critical contributions of America's entrepreneurs and small business owners.
"On May 16, all attendees of any of the week's Maui SBW sessions are encouraged to celebrate with us," said Fung.
To increase event accessibility, MBB and the Maui SBW special organizing team and supporters are arranging mass transit logistics to provide a custom schedule and routes.

"We require an RSVP because we care about offering quality," said Fung. "The attendance numbers allow us to ensure proper capacity handling and ultimately provides the justification statistics to sponsors to continue having support to offer free educational events that help local individual, micro and small businesses grow stronger."
