WEEK
All 2021 camps will be online (907) 278-2744 alaskabusinessweek.com
Alaska Business Week is a fun, intensive entrepreneurship experience for high school students. ABW runs programs
teaching the basics of business, leadership and entrepreneurship.
Participants compete as teams
in a dynamic business simulation with the guidance of adult mentors from the business community. After completing the program, students have a competitive edge on workplace readiness, college preparation, and overall life success.
At ABW, students get personal experience working with real business leaders, company founders and CEOs. At the start
of each camp, students form dedicated teams or ‘companies’
to compete in a gamified business simulation. The curriculum is designed to promote leadership, ethical decision-making, public speaking, collaborative teamwork, and profitable entrepreneurship for Alaska communities.
2021 programs will be virtual to ensure we can provide the opportunity to participate to all students.
