$500,000 Southeast business plan contest
JUNEAU (AP) — Two organizations have teamed up to spur business development in southeast Alaska by hosting a competition.
Haa Aaní, LLC, and the Nature Conversancy are combining forces to fund a $500,000 business plan contest, CoastAlaska reported.
The Path to Prosperity project is aimed at, but not limited to, smaller communities.
“Our focus has to be on providing opportunities for families and residents to remain in these rural communities,” Russell Dick, president and CEO of Haa Aaní, LLC, a subsidiary of the Juneau-based Sealaska regional Native corporation, said.
