The North Slope Marketplace competition is a program designed to foster economic development on the North Slope through Shareholder-owned small businesses. We fund the development, growth, or expansion of these businesses by awarding up to $25,000.00 (the maximum lifetime awarded amount) for eligible businesses on the North Slope.
Applicants/ Businesses are considered eligible if the following requirements are met:
- The Applicant currently resides on the North Slope
- The business is or will be located in a North Slope community
- The Applicant is 18 years or older at the time of the application, and
- The proposed or existing business is owned by an ASRC Shareholder
To enter the North Slope Marketplace competition, applicants must complete a business plan or proposal and submit an Application Packet for review.
Alaska Growth Capital will work with each winner to revise, update and finalize their business plan, develop a budget, and will offer independent tax advisers. Workshops to assist entrants and business owners will be held throughout the year and announced on our website and Alaska Growth Capital’s Shareholder Outreach Facebook page.
