About the event

Registration is live for Launch Alaska's biggest event of the year - the Energize Alaska Summit happening June 26-28 in the beautiful state of Alaska. This is an invite-only, multi-day event held in conjunction with our larger public facing event, Demo Day.

Launch Alaska is on a mission: to accelerate the resource revolution. From our unique position at the top of the world, we invest in scalable startups working in the food, water, transportation, and energy (FWTE) nexus. We harness Alaska’s distinct mix of resources, markets, and opportunities to help startups scale solutions that are sparking the next industrial revolution.

We can’t do this alone. Join us for our annual summit to meet our portfolio companies, help us rapidly iterate ideas, and strategize how Alaska can best be a proving ground for innovative technologies. Attendees include startups, investors, military partners, national labs, accelerators, government representatives, utilities, and other global partners in the FWTE nexus.
