Thirteen coalitions from every corner of our state recently completed proposals for the US Economic Development Administration’s Build Back Better Regional Challenge. Coalitions each proposed 3-8 projects totaling $25-$75 million, using a cluster-based approach to economic development. These projects offer an exciting view into the opportunities and investible ventures designed to create robust, equitable, and sustainable economic growth in Alaska. 
Only a few of these proposals may receive federal grant funding, but each contains exciting opportunities supported by public, civic, and private industry partners who will want to find partners and entrepreneurs.    
Each coalition will present a short summary of their project portfolio and the opportunities for new venture creation. There will be an opportunity for discussion with the teams to learn about specific projects and time to discuss barriers and challenges to the startup community at large that should be addressed to accelerate innovation in our state and support for these projects.   
The program is being offered by the Juneau Economic Development Council and Alaska Version 3
