The Techstars Startup Week Alaska is 10 days of events and celebration of our Alaskan communities – that builds momentum and opportunity around innovation and entrepreneurship. In Anchorage, we will be kicking off the week with a Startup Weekend November 9-11.

Startup Week is a cornerstone statewide event in “Innovate Alaska (2.0)” and the Alaska Innovation Pipeline, a statewide effort to strengthen and diversify AK’s economic base through improved access to effective resources and mentors to: Grow entrepreneur ecosystems; empower export and import substitution businesses to innovate, and engage the next generation of Alaska entrepreneurs.

The purpose of Startup Week is to HAVE FUN (!!), and connect, and celebrate in the process.  We do this by reaching out and connecting with individual entrepreneurs, wanna-preneurs, intrepreneurs, creatives, technicals, inventors, businesses, and administrators, and investors, of all ages, welcoming them into the startup community, and doing FUN STUFF!!

We’re led by local entrepreneurs and startup activists and hosted in amazing spaces all over town.  And we want you involved!  Take a second to sign up for our list to keep up with all the updates we’ll have for you over the next few weeks.
