The Alaska Startups Ideator Community is an online platform for founders, startup teams, investors and mentors to engage around any and all of their business ideas. The Ideator Community is currently a invite-only platform. Members of Ideator will have access to Alaska mentors and funders, have community support to grow their business idea, and meet like-minded people to build a team around a business idea. The goal of the Community is to support and grow the entrepreneurial, mentor, and investor community throughout the state of Alaska.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are my ideas kept private?

The platform is intended to create a trusted community, you may keep all or part of your business ideas private until you are ready to share them. We do encourage you to share at least your business name and elevator pitch so that users and mentors can see what you are working on. We believe that a strong entrepreneurial community is one that shares ideas and provides feedback to help grow ideas.


is there a membership cost?

The Alaska Startups Ideator platform is currently in a one-year pilot, and there is currently no cost associated with your Ideator membership. Your one-year membership is being sponsored by the Alaska Startups community including UAA, Alaska Investor Network and the Division of Economic Development. We hope to keep Ideator open at no-cost to you after this pilot year, however if we add a membership fee next year you are under no obligation to maintain your membership.
