In the Alaska Business Editorial department we’re passionate about cats, plants, Bob Ross, and Frank’s, but those are all secondary to our investment in Alaska businesses and their contributions to the state’s economy and communities.
Through our monthly print edition, online content, e-newsletters, and social media platforms, our goal is to highlight the individuals, corporations, nonprofits, and other organizations that create jobs and opportunity throughout the state.
Our best resource for that information is the community: we frequent conferences, attend luncheons, and hustle to media briefings; we scour press releases and obsessively check in on social media; and of course, we reach out to our sources, the professionals who are here in Alaska doing the work and pushing the projects we love to feature.
And we want to hear from you: acquisitions, partnerships, mergers, certifications, new hires, additional lines of business, unique service offerings, innovations, initiatives, projects, contracts, subsidiaries… and we certainly wouldn’t turn down a good pie recipe.
We are Alaska’s business advocates.

The Corporate 100
Alaska Business has been celebrating the corporations that have a significant impact on Alaska’s economy since 1993. At the time, the corporations weren’t ranked as the list didn’t have specific ranking criteria. Instead, the Alaska Business editorial team held long, detailed, and occasionally passionate discussions about which organizations around the state were providing jobs, owned or leased property, used local vendors, demonstrated a high level of community engagement, and in general enriched Alaska.
