"The 49th State Angel Fund is launching the 49SAF Co-investment Fund for Alaska businesses. Companies must be based in Alaska to apply, though other requirements and criteria exist (see below).
The 49SAF Co-investment Fund is a dollar-for-dollar fund: 49SAF will match new cash equity (or equity-like) investment into any Alaska company up to $25,000, near-automatically. Recognizing the lack of diversity in our portfolio, 49SAF has carved out half of this effort’s total capital to create the Building Equity Co-investment Fund to prioritize applications from businesses owned by Black, Indigenous and People of Color (“BIPOC”)."
While 49SAF is focusing on building Equity among Alaskan businesses reserving half of their funds for BIPOC, all business owners are eligible to apply.
