PRESS RELEASE

101 Financial Honored By Hawaii Business Magazine and SBA Hawaii For Most Innovative Business


The financial education company 101 Financial, has been recognized by the Hawaii Small Business Administration and Hawaii Business Magazine. 101 Financial has received The Hawaii Business Editor's Choice Award for Most Innovative Business. Alan Akina, founder of 101 Financial, accepted the award.

Honolulu, Hawaii, May 6th, 2016 Hawaii Business Magazine has honored Alan Akina's financial education company, 101 Financial, with their Editor's Choice Award for Most Innovative Business, at the Hawaii SBA's 29th Annual Small Business Awards.

101 Financial has been recognized by the Hawaii Small Business Administration for its innovative and effective educational business model. This SBA Awards ceremony and luncheon honors Hawaii's most successful businesses, entrepreneurs and advocates as part of Hawaii's largest Small Business Administration Awards program.

At the SBA's 29th Annual Small Business Awards Luncheon in Honolulu, 101 Financial was honored because of its unique approach to educating people in the area of money management and financial literacy. 101 Financial's educational approach is not the usual training model many companies in this industry are using.

Akina's 101 Financial uses an old-school business model, where students are taught how to take control of their personal finances and to manage money better. This financial education is delivered in a unique face-to-face manner, when a 101 Financial Instructor sits down with students at home, or virtually via internet video conference, for live teaching sessions.

101 Financial Instructor Shan Otare said: "Alan Akina has made the understanding of finances something that even a kid can learn. Alan turned his own otherwise bleak situation into something that not only helped his own family, but more importantly is now helping others."

101 Financial's innovative education approach earned the Hawaii Business 2016 Editor's Choice Award for Most Innovative Business. Akina's company brings value to the community by delivering financial education in a face-to-face manner. 101 Financial students begin with a Personal Financial Analysis, then receive an in depth education in financial literacy that many never received in school.
