2010 Smallbiz Success Awards
(page 1 of 8)
A group of Native Hawaiians helping to keep our nation safe. A solar-energy innovator and a sunscreen company, both of them aiming locally and globally. Two Neighbor Island family stores, each almost a century old. And a company whose employees give and give and give some more.
They are the 2010 winners of the Hawaii Business SmallBiz Success Awards.
