The second event in the ICE Jam StartupWeek Series - don’t miss it, this event will be co-hosted with Alaska Center ICE (Center for Innovation, Commercialization, and Entrepreneurship), Alaska PTAC (Procurement and Technical Assistance Center), Brasfield SBIR Accounting, SBDC (Small Business Development Center) + others coming soon.

Following our previous session on funding, we explore some of the amazing non-dilutive funding options available for businesses including loans, grants and contracts to grow your startup. This session will outline some of the programs available to early-innovators, small businesses and nonprofits to get some of their first funding to bring their ideas to early fruition. Our experts will be available throughout the session to take questions.

Even if you’re familiar with some of these programs, get an update as lots have changed in 2020, and we expect to see further changes in 2021 with the new Democratic administration, which we will be able to hypothesize about.

Session agenda includes brief 8 minute presentations from program advocates and an in-depth Q&A at the end. Register for the session by clicking the register button above. Note your one-time free registration is valid for ALL of the ICE Jam StartupWeek Series events.
