Opportunity for USA startup businesses to participate in a program to test or deploy innovative prototypes or services addressing climate change issues in Alaska. Funding is intended to assist early-stage companies seeking to secure initial customers. Eligible applicants are early-stage companies innovating in the food, water, transportation, and energy sectors. Ideal companies have a working prototype / service, are post revenue or revenue ready, and series B or below.

The challenges facing Alaska represent some of the defining global issues of this century: Climate change, a thawing and newly accessible Arctic, microgrids and decentralized energy, community resiliency, food security, energy costs and access, ocean vitality, national security, and the transition from an outmoded economy to one suited for the future. This gives Alaska an incredibly important role in critical global conversations—and the development and deployment of solutions. Launch Alaska is proud to be sitting at the heart of the resource revolution, working side by side with some of the brightest startups in the world to launch innovations that tackle the planet's biggest challenges.
