Geeks in the Woods

Working remote and connected to build software startups

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. Join us building the startup community and tech ecosystem in Alaska.

Stay and Work remotely from properties in Alaska


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 natural and undeveloped. Both properties encourage software engineers, entrepreneurs and other creative professionals to work remotely yet connected.
