With a focus on energy, water and transportation solutions, Katherine Jernstrom and Isaac Vanderburg are leading entrepreneurs supporting Alaska’s growing Innovation Economy through startup incubation and acceleration.

Alaska’s Innovation Economy has significantly grown in the last few years with investments in start-up ecosystems and growth particularly in the “Blue” or “Ocean Economy." As National Fisherman reported, for Alaska, the blue economy includes traditional sectors — such as fisheries, oil and gas, mariculture, coastal tourism and transportation — as well as new arenas, like robotics, biofuels, undersea drones, renewable energy and marine biotechnology. Alaska and Washington both are looking to be on the cutting edge of this growth. 

 According to the Office of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the Ocean Economy will double in the next two decades to the tune of $3 Trillion globally.  But - only if there is significant investment and growth in innovation and sustainability. 

Join us to learn more about Alaska's Innovation Economy, how Seattle's innovation ecosystem supports Alaska's growth, and shared economic development opportunities between the two.
