workshops & webinars







MEDB’s Business Assistance division provides regular training and professional development opportunities tailored to the Maui County business community’s needs and interests. 

Past workshops have covered topics ranging from branding and social media to venture capital and patents. We responded to popular demand by adding seminars on intellectual property, finance for entrepreneurs, and tax strategies for small businesses. We have offered training opportunities throughout Maui County (Maui, Molokai, and Lanai), and our webinars are accessible to businesses online. 

During the pandemic, our workshop series moved online with a shift of focus to helping businesses respond to COVID-19, with topics including agriculture relief programs, SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan Assistance program and PPP loan forgiveness.
