We provide the information in our lists and directories for free as a service to our readers; we also provide listings to the companies therein free of charge as a service to the business community. Our goal at Alaska Business is inform and connect business-minded organizations and individuals in whatever way we can.

The lists below are updated in the month they are published in the print edition; those which appear annually in the Power List are updated when the Power List is published.

In addition to our industry directories, we have three flagship lists: The Corporate 100 (companies ranked by number of Alaska employees) published in April; the Best of Alaska Business awards (our readers vote on their favorite Alaska businesses) published in July; and the Top 49ers (organizations that are 51 percent Alaskan owned, ranked by revenue) published in October.
