Signol builds on cutting-edge behavioral science with a proprietary data analytics platform to help companies identify inefficiencies, change behaviors, and save on their fuel and energy costs. Signol was launched in 2017 following a research project between one of the company’s founders (then a researcher at Boston University) and Virgin Atlantic, where they cut carbon emissions and saved $5.4 million over 8 months. We’re excited to connect them to the global logistics, shipping and aviation hub that is Alaska
Oklo is developing very small advanced fission reactors to provide affordable, reliable, safe and clean power to save people money on their energy bills, bring power to those without it, and reduce emissions. Oklo's technology requires no refueling for over a decade, enables the conversion of used nuclear fuel to clean energy, and avoids millions of tons of CO2 over the alternatives. And Alaska has been a central part of the company’s deployment aspirations since the beginning. We’re excited to see how a new era of advanced micro nuclear can help address the energy and cost challenges that face our state and the world.

Helix has created a unique mobile payment app and electronic card duo. Concurrent with each other, Helix Secure enables users to generate one time use Visa Prepaid virtual account numbers (VANs) instantly with the app. These VANs can be funded from their bitcoin wallet or bank account (ACH) and spent by swiping in the same traditional way at any point of sale (POS). By doing so, Helix has created a product that puts consumers, for the first time, in charge of their own purchasing protection. One time use VANs are the most secure method of payment in use today.
Threat Informant is an Anchorage-based IT security firm that focuses on information security. The Multi-Tenant Advanced Security (MTAS) system is our new Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution that will help clients meet compliance standards and develop a threat intelligence program; and, provide Threat Informant analysts with massive amounts of data from various client sites to identify correlations (i.e. identify threat, identify thresholds, etc) as it relates to information security. The MTAS has innumerable applications, but the one we are most excited about is in the Energy sector. By placing the MTAS at different energy sites (grids, microgrids, etc), data collection and then analysis will allow Threat Informant employees to identify the independent and dependent variables as it relates to energy savings.
