Students - Join the Upstart Alpha Accelerator Cohort

Our ACEP partners at the University of Alaska Anchorage, the Business Enterprise Institute’s Center for Economic Development, are recruiting for their Upstart Alpha 2020/2021 entrepreneur cohort.

Upstart Alpha is a startup accelerator program that offers University of Alaska students an opportunity to participate in the building and creation of new businesses in Alaska.

Participants will learn new skills and hear from established Alaskan entrepreneurs and subject matter experts while building a new business. 

Interested? Apply by Friday, Oct. 2, 2020, to join a cohort of peers to develop entrepreneurial skills. Funding of more than $1,500 is available to program participants. You do not need to have a current business but should be ready to help start one, either on your own or as part of a team.

Upstart Alpha Startup Accelerator is a member of the ARCTIC Program, an initiative of the Office of Naval Research.

Applications are due Friday, Oct. 2, 2020 at 5 p.m. More details at
