On November 6th Kauai launched it’s first annual Small Business Fair with the subtitle, “Learn Effective Strategies for a Successful Business.” Organized by the County of Kauai’s Office of Economic Development, the Fair included a number of business support organizations as exhibitors, such as DBEDT, the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs’ (DCCA) Business Action Center (BAC), the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and the Kauai Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, an impressive panel discussion was held, which included successful Kauai entrepreneurs presenting and fielding questions on their secrets to successfully starting and growing their businesses. Attendees, many of whom were just starting their businesses, were pleased to find a one-stop business support network at the Fair. DCCA, for instance, distributed information on all the legal logistics of setting up a business and DBEDT spoke with attendees about the Department’s exporting and Enterprise Zone programs.
