Leading and inspiring innovation in business, education, and our community.
From business mentoring, to STEM education in local schools, to conferences, the Maui Economic Development Board’s wide variety of programs have touched thousands of people and businesses across Maui County and the state of Hawaii.
Maui County’s high quality of life, advanced infrastructure, and central location in the Pacific have positioned it as an ideal place to do business in the 21st century. The islands are home to a diversified economy that not only attracts companies and organizations from across the U.S., but also supports a range of local startups.
education to workforce
MEDB’s Workforce Development program is aimed at building a pipeline of skilled workers from kindergarten through career. Our end goal is a resident workforce with the technological capabilities, innovation, critical thinking, and entrepreneurial skills to participate fully in Maui’s digital economy so that young people have opportunity.
Our conferences and events bring together key stakeholders, including business and industry leaders, entrepreneurs and small business owners, experts and innovators, government, NGOs, future leaders, and members of the Maui community. These events have put Maui on the map as a premier location for many industries.
MEDB is one of the only values-based economic development organizations in the country. That means we work toward expanding and diversifying our economy in a way that’s balanced with environmental stewardship, cultural appropriateness, and social equity. And we don’t do it alone. We’re catalysts. We inspire. We build partnerships. And we bring our values to everything we do.
Our programs promote innovation, business, education, and community in Maui County. We invite you to learn more about our work, and get involved today!
“MEDB plays an important role in facilitating discussion between community, business and political arenas.”
