Core Ideas Boost Local Businesses

Community contributed by Kuulei Arce

On May 31, twenty clients of MEO Business Development Corporation (BDC) graduated from the Core Four Classes. Each client came in with ideas but needed more information to solidify it.  Well, after five weeks they walked out with their certificates in hand and more confident that they can make their dreams come true.   

They attended classes twice a week under the instruction of Kuulei Arce and finally presented or discussed their business plan to CEO of BDC, Susie Thieman.  In return for presenting and developing a better understanding of running a small business, each client received a certificate of completion and lots of knowledge to help guide them through their entrepreneurship. Congratulations for a job well done!

Core Four is a business planning course that teaches you, an aspiring or existing business owner, the information and skills you need in four fundamental or “CORE” elements of business planning:
