Launch or grow your business

Three winning entrepreneurs will receive an award package of up to $40,000 in seed funding for consulting/technical assistance to develop their business concept, along with support in finding investor funding. The competition aims to launch companies that will increase local employment, have a positive social and economic impact on their communities, promote sustainable use of local resources, and increase entrepreneurial know-how and business leadership in Southeast Alaska.

Why P2P?

Southeast Alaska’s rural communities are suffering high unemployment rates, the loss of traditional jobs and a stagnant economy.  Many residents leave their home communities in search of opportunities in urban areas. This outmigration threatens the very fiber of rural community health and well being.

Who Should Apply?

The competition is open to all residents of Southeast Alaska.  This includes individuals, For-profit businesses and Tribal entities.  Business concepts must be for a business located in Southeast Alaska.
