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.
