What is Alaska Entrepreneurship Week?

THE Week is a week put together by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs.


It is a long structured set of events organized by entrepreneurs, supporting organizations, non-profits, legislators, investors, and all the “dots” that form the entrepreneurial fabric of the state.

 

Mission

To review, ignite, and propel entrepreneurial efforts in Alaska within a single week

Vision

To annually jumpstart the improvement of Alaska’s entrepreneurial ecosystem by bringing together innovators, small business owners, investors, and support organizations to showcase their achievements, explore opportunities, and foster collaboration.
Through Alaska Entrepreneurship Week, we envision a platform where stakeholders interact, discover, and build lasting connections, driving sustained economic growth and making Alaska a beacon of entrepreneurial success.

 

With these in mind,  THE Week  is designed to:

Connect

Bringing together the diverse tapestry of Alaska’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, this event links startups, small businesses, support organizations, legislators, and investors with the resources and networks they need to thrive

Showcase

The week features a series of events, including pitch sessions, workshops, and keynote speeches from industry leaders, to highlight Alaskan businesses’ unique business opportunities and innovative spirit.

Inspire

By sharing success stories and providing practical resources, we aim to fuel the ambition of current and aspiring entrepreneurs to pursue their business dreams.

Engage

With interactive sessions and collaborative forums, participants gain practical insights and forge meaningful connections that last beyond the event.

How are the events organized?


Each day of the week is themed according to the basic five stages of a company, and the majority of the events that day will be related to such subject.

 

 


Within each day, longer events will take place in mornings and afternoons. During lunch hours we’ll have events shorter than one hour to allow folks working 9-5 to use their lunch time to attend.

To help with commutes, we’ll try to group events in the same locations when possible, as well as encourage organizers to add online capabilities.

 

An updated calendar can be found here .

Who should attend?

Whether you are an established business owner, a budding entrepreneur, or an investor interested in the vast potential of Alaska’s markets, Entrepreneurship Week offers valuable insights and opportunities for everyone in the business community.
