Alaska Challenges Program


Envisioning our future with Alaska’s next leaders


We all have an idea of what we’d like our communities to look like, but no one knows exactly how we’ll get there. Together, with Alaska Version 3, let’s explore the road ahead.

Alaska offers a wide range of opportunities for entrepreneurs and new ventures that solve Alaska’s challenges. These opportunities and these ideas create our Next Alaska.

Those who joined us were able to hear about the “investable challenges that matter” to our state’s future that can be exciting opportunities for your work as an innovator, student, entrepreneur, or startup founder. We learned about challenges in areas such as:

Food Systems & Resilience

Climate Change

Energy Transitions

Regenerative Economies

Ocean Products & Technology

Health Care Methods & Delivery
