Fairbanks Startup Weekend @ Venue
Alaska Wilderness: Big ideas in 54 hoursDo you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve but don't know where to start or who to start with?

Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.

What do you need to bring?

Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.

Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.

Techstars Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:
  • 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
  • One-on-one time with amazing mentors
  • A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
  • All the internet and coffee you can consume.
Click on the “Buy Ticket” button now!

Still have questions, feel free to reach us at “fairbanks@startupweekend.org”.

Don’t wait any longer and join the Techstars Startup Weekend movement!

No talk, all action!

Go-To-Market Strategy for Startups - FBX Live Hosted Meetup
The Alaska Angel Conference (AAC) is a group of investors who are investing in Alaska's tomorrow by investing in Alaska businesses today. The Workshop series, generally open to both Investors and Entrepreneurs, serves to both introduce investors AND Alaska businesses to Angel Investing, through webinars focused on what it takes to become an investible business.
The AAC increases the number of angel investors in our 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. In the process, we help nurture the companies and mentor the founders who apply for funding and award a $100k+ investment into one of the startups that apply.
The 2020 Angel Conference schedule will break down how the investor group will work through the applications and ultimately arrive at an investment decision, which will be revealed at the final event which is on April 23rd, 2020 and is open to the public.
