Post-High / College


Program Information:

The vision behind Māpunawai is to redefine and disrupt the image of the stereotypical entrepreneur in order to allow the average person the opportunity to grow their own business and generate cashflow to increase their financial resiliency.

With this, Māpunawai aims to keep Native Hawaiians living in Hawai'i.

Māpunawai believes that every Native Hawaiian should own at least one online business.


The two best places to start are on Amazon and Etsy.

The Two Pathways:

​The Māpunawai program has two tracks, one to increase sales for Hawaiians who already have handmade products (the Etsy Program) and another for Hawaiians without a product or business idea (the Amazon FBA program)

Fulfilled by Amazon:

In the Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA) course, you will learn to find, validate, and manufacture your own product to sell on Amazon while utilizing online marketing techniques to reach as many customers as possible.


In the Etsy course, you will learn how to sell your handmade products on Etsy, optimize your shop, listings, and customer service techniques, and build an audience on social media that will support you in ways that go beyond just purchasing your products.

Apply Today & Build Financial Independence:

There are limited seats available, and applications are reviewed on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in applying for the mentorship program, don’t wait!

After all of the applications are in, Māpunawai will ask that you join them for a quick video call to make sure that you are a good fit for each other. Again, the program is FREE, so seats will fill up fast.
