Geeks in the Woods

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 Lucas and Lee Brown are on a mission to shape the Last Frontier into the Tech Frontier - for software startups. Technology has advanced to easily enable working remotely, while still being connected. Outside of aggregating in big cities, a higher quality of life can be achieved. Being disconnected from the lower forty-eight states, Alaskans have bonded together and have formed a strong sense of community - a critical factor in building sustainable startups.

Startup Studio

Long overlooked by venture capitalists and the overall startup community, we see Alaska as the next great tech frontier. We believe that startups can leverage Alaska’s strong sense of community and connection to nature to solve local and global economic, environmental, technological and other challenges.

We enjoy partnering with entrepreneurs to build sustainable web-based businesses. Unlike accelerators that run competitive programs and founder-bootcamps, we partner with entrepreneurs as co-founders - providing the talent and financial resources to build ideas together. We deploy a combination of technology expertise, vetted startup experience, and our unique software framework.

Need technical co-founders for your startup team? Or have a great idea for a software startup? Connect with us.
