Background

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 investment decision.

In 2019, the fund associated with the AAC invested $115,000 in Ramper Innovations, with other finalists receiving separate investments from individual investors as well. A similar investment was made in Pandere Shoes through the 2020 Alaska Angel Conference. Our most recent AAC investment winner was WebbRes for the 2021 Alaska Angel Conference.
