#ShineYourLight – Hezekiah “Ky” Holland

Hezekiah “Ky” Holland wants a vibrant startup ecosystem for Alaska! In 2014, Ky was instrumental in establishing the Alaska Accelerator Fund, a fund to grow early-stage businesses in Anchorage. As a Partner with Alyeska Venture Management, Ky connects investors, entrepreneurs, and opportunities to take them to the next level! A big part of Ky’s work is education. He teaches angel investors what it means to invest in early-stage business so that the Anchorage community has better-informed investors and advisors. Ky is also active in numerous events across the state–1 Million Cups, Startup Weekend Fairbanks, and more–creating enthusiasm for entrepreneurship! Learn more at akacceleratorfund.com.
