Get ready to apply for an investment of up to $200,000

The application deadline for pitch/entrepreneur submissions is Wednesday, January 23, 2020.

Applications for the 2020 cycle are open. 

The Alaska Angel Conference (AAC) is now accepting entrepreneur applications for the 2020 round of investing. Last year, the fund associated with the 2019 AAC invested $115,000 in Ramper Innovations, with other finalists receiving separate investments from individual investors as well.

Applicants must be a United States company, be located in or have significant operations in the state of Alaska, and seeking investment up to $200,000.

The goal for AAC is to increase the number of angel investors in Alaska’s statewide startup ecosystem by pairing experienced angel investors with novice investors and leading them through a structured 12-week process of identifying, filtering, selecting, and managing a group angel investment. The conference concludes with an event showcasing the finalists and the final decision of investors in Juneau on April 23.

The application process is through the website Gust, which is a global platform for funding, incorporating, and operating scalable, high growth companies. To apply, interested entrepreneurs must first create a Gust profile, then visit the AAC 2020 profile for the application to the conference.  The link to the AAC 2020 Gust profile can be found at https://gust.com/organizations/alaska-angel-conference-2020/public_profile.
