“Over the past two months, Alaska Center ICE has been supporting the Alaska Investor Network in expanding their community offerings,” said Center ICE’s Huckleberry Hopper. Through a hosted platform built on HeyMarvelous, Center ICE expanded AIN’s ability to instruct up-and-coming investors on the art form that is analyzing start-ups. Further, and through a collaboration with SBDC of Anchorage, Center ICE restarted “$10 Buck Lunch,” a low-barrier networking event between entrepreneurs and investors. This year $10 Buck Lunch will be hosted across the state in Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Juneau. Join us in Fairbanks Tuesday, Nov. 15 at noon!”
