Koniag is unique. Established in 1971 by Congress to settle aboriginal land claims in Alaska, Koniag is one of the 12 for-profit Alaska Native regional corporations. Owned by more than 4,100 Alutiiq Shareholders, Koniag’s social mission originated with our Alutiiq ancestors who have called our region home for thousands of years. Our values are a part of everything that we do—every engagement and investment decision is a reflection of our commitment to living our culture. When Koniag’s employees and customers thrive, the business is successful and offers educational scholarships, elder benefits, dividends, and other critical services for our Alutiiq Shareholders and their descendants.
Here for the Right Reasons
We are here for the right reasons. Koniag is not a private equity or venture capital firm. We are in business to meet our social mission and it shows in the way we support and do business with our subsidiary companies. We invest in established organizations with the vision of creating a long-term partnership.
Leveraging Synergies and Expertise
At Koniag, we are committed to helping each of our companies achieve sustainable growth. As owners, we devote substantial time and resources towards business development, including recruiting executive talent, long-term strategic planning, business diversification, salesforce development, identifying and executing acquisitions, and succession planning. We also look for and leverage synergies between our companies and sector leaders to identify opportunities, share ideas and experiences between experts, and drive growth.
Koniag is investing in the organic growth of our current companies and acquiring new companies who share our vision for sustainable growth and commitment to our larger social mission. We are looking for modern, mission-driven companies that will fit well with Koniag’s culture.
Personal and Corporate Growth
Koniag communicates often and clearly to our employees, subsidiaries, and Alutiiq Shareholders, leading to internal alignment with our corporate goals. We recognize that employees are an important asset and encourage continued development for staff to ensure our companies remain leaders in each industry.
Koniag’s approach to growth by acquisition is quality over quantity. We are seeking businesses that are industry leaders, have strong and sustainable profit margins, and that fit within our culture. Koniag has built a foundation for continued financial success and is looking for organizations that want to be a part of our team.
Koniag is looking for companies with strong and stable leadership teams who are interested in partnering with Koniag to help their companies to realize continued growth. We look for companies that are interested in being part of a larger team while maintaining their independence and that would like to leverage the knowledge of other industry leaders to help them reach their goals.
