Maui Small Businesses: Special Grants to Show Your Product at the Made in Hawaii Festival

This is a public service message. 

If you have a small business in Maui County, making local products, then there's a special grant to attend the Made in Hawaii Festival, August 16-18 on Oahu. It's a great expo that gets huge exposure from buyers and residents all over the state. I've actually been to the Made in Hawaii Fair years ago, and it was well-attended with a variety of hand crafts, art, jewelry, and food products including baking mixes and jams and jellies.

Highlights of this financial assistance program:
  • $1000 stipend to attend the Made in Hawaii Festival and represent Maui County
  • Free booth space
  • Up to 12 small businesses will be selected
  • Information meeting to be held June 5th at 3 pm at the Maui County Business Resource Center, aka the "Small Business Center" at the Maui Mall. 
  • Applications are required - pick up an application at the MCBRC or at
  • Deadline: June 19, 2013 at 4:30 PM. For more information, call the MCBRC at 873-8247.
