This "Aloha State GEW Coordinator" consists of several persons and stakeholders across the state working together, including the movers and shakers within Maui Business Brainstormers (MBB).
In 2016, state of Hawai'i had its first Global Entrepreneurship Week. It was a 5-day event in Maui county (link). Then, 2-day format kept happening in the subsequent years, also in Maui.
MBB is a grassroots group in the county of Maui, apolitical, 100% independently managed (with no money or with sponsorship money), and 100% volunteer based. MBB exists since January 2012. Its only purpose: Working on finding and creating ways to help local entrepreneurs, new and existing businesses thrive on their journey from the ground up (self-sustainability, self-sustaining status, and business growth.)
