The induction ceremony into the Alaska Business Hall of Fame will be held Thursday, January 21, 2021 at the Dena'ina Civic & Convention Center in Anchorage, AK. Alaska Business is the Title sponsor of this event. Alaska Business will feature an interview and biography of each of the Laureates in the January 2021 edition. All proceeds from the event will benefit Junior Achievement of Alaska's statewide K-12 programs teaching financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship to more than 15,000 students annually in Alaska.
In 1987, Junior Achievement of Alaska, Inc. began the Alaska Business Hall of Fame to honor outstanding individuals of Alaskan business. Since then, the Hall of Fame has become one of the state's most prestigious events, inducting new Laureates on an annual basis.
"This class joins a group of more than 100 Hall of Fame Laureates exemplifying the rich diversity of Alaska in terms of geographical regions, business and industrial heritage, and cultures. In essence, the Laureates represent the foundation upon which the state of Alaska is built and continues to grow." Ret. Gen. Mark Hamilton, Hall of Fame 2020 Emcee
