Business planning classes set

By Staff | Aug 25, 2011

WAILUKU — MEO’s Business Development Corp. will hold a series of nighttime classes for entrepreneurs during September and October in Wailuku.

These Core Four Business Planning Classes cover how to set goals, do market research, determine pricing, make the sale, understand and create cash flow projections and write a business plan — everything you need to know to start, fix or grow your business.

New this year is the addition of one week following the 30-hour course, during which students will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with BDC staff while putting the finishing touches on their business plans and/or cash flow projections to present them on Banker’s Night/Graduation on Oct. 25.

Free and open to the public, introductory classes will be held on Sept. 6 and 8 from 6 to 7 p.m.

The six-week series begins on Tuesday, Sept. 13, and continues from 6 to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

All sessions will be held at MEO’s Family Center at 99 Mahalani St. in Wailuku.

Registration is required for the six-week series. There is a fee of $300 for the course, but funding from the county Office of Economic Development makes financial assistance available to some students.

For more information, call Evette Lau at 249-2990, extension 318.
