to pioneer the
tech frontier
in ALASKA

Alaska is vast in both scale and diversity. It is a place of great connectedness, where people and technology shape the land, and the land shapes the people and technology. Twin brothers are in Alaska creating The Last Frontier into the Tech Frontier for software startups. Technology has advanced to enable working remotely and being connected where higher quality of life is achieved outside of aggregating in big cities. Being disconnected from the lower forty-eight states provides a strong sense of community - a critical factor in building sustainable startups. The cold and dark provide ample time to focus on mastering our passions. The sun reminds us to celebrate our wins.

Properties

In order to experiment with work life integration, we have two unique properties in Alaska. Both of the properties are surrounded by some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery and provide endless access to renowned outdoor adventures year-round. While the Valdez property is a modern retreat with three houses, the McCarthy property is raw. Software engineers, entrepreneurs and other creative professionals are encouraged to work remotely yet connected.

Geeks in Valdez

Nestled in the Chugach Mountains overlooking Robe Lake, the Geeks in Valdez property is located just 10 miles outside of downtown Valdez and 20 miles away from the summit of Thompson Pass. This property is the premier destination to work remotely and connected in Alaska.

Geeks in McCarthy

Our property in McCarthy is a daring journey into the big unknown of America’s largest national park. The Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve is a spectacular environment with vast mountainous terrain dominated by glaciers and riven with furious meltwater. Once the snow melts, this property is an extreme destination to work remotely yet connected.

Tech in Alaska

Silicon Valley --> Seattle --> Alaska? Tech workers are interested in moving North for improved quality of life. When Lee Brown, a tech worker himself and cofounder of Geeks in the Woods, first moved to the Valdez property in early 2016, he spent the next two years coding software from an Arctic Oven tent. He found the setting to offer space and solitude to focus, and increased motivation knowing that adventure awaited just outside the door. Alaska has high availability of gigabit internet throughout the state providing the foundation for a vibrant community of those working remotely and telecommuting.
