As we wind down National Entrepreneurship Month, we highlight the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival’s online Made in Hawaii Marketplace for Kids by Kids. This keiki program supports student entrepreneurs, giving island youth hands-on experience to build a business from the ground up. The Conversation sat down with Donna Therrien, Director of Education for Hawaiʻi Agricultural Foundation, to get the details.

The Young Entrepreneurs program is run by HAF, a beneficiary of the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival. This interview aired on The Conversation on Nov. 29, 2021.

Lillian Tsang is the senior producer of The Conversation. She has been part of the talk show team since it first aired in 2011. Contact her at
