At Surge Accelerator, we know how long it takes to do research and development on new technologies that will give us better energy services. Over 10 years of research and development, for example, goes into making your typical solar-paneled roof. Some of our portfolio companies focus on “standing up” for the environment, while some help makes things cleaner and greener (for lack of a better term). We believe we can make solar-paneled roofs cheaper and easier to use, which will make clean energy more accessible to more people!
Our passion is to be the best accelerator for entrepreneurs in the energy industry. Our focus is to identify and develop top-notch business leaders who can build great companies, solve corporate challenges, and contribute to a thriving sector that will support a fair economy for a long time to come!
Our core purpose is to make the world a better place. We do this by empowering entrepreneurs to solve energy issues and providing them access to world-class experts, capital sources, and more companies like yours – companies that might be potential partners or buyers for your innovative technology.
