maui business & community

It is essential to understand the landscape where you will be doing business. Whether you are an entrepreneur launching your new startup, a small business owner looking to expand, or a professional moving to Maui County for work, you need information to make smart decisions.  MEDB’s Community Profile is an in-depth guide to doing business on Maui, Molokai, and Lanai. The August 8 wildfires have taken a catastrophic toll on our community – not only in Lahaina and Upcountry, where homes, businesses and loved ones were lost – but also across the island with an economy still so reliant on the visitor industry. 

Some of the information in these pages may not yet reflect the post-wildfire status.  You will find data and easy-to-digest information in critical areas, including taxes, employment, incentives, and business infrastructure, as well as everything you need to know about living and working in Maui County.
