SURGE is looking for the world’s best entrepreneurs. We provide you with access to capital, customers, & over 150 of the world’s best experts in the energy industry.
We understand that you are running a business and do not want to sit in a classroom environment. As a result, we spend 4 intense months with you to grow your business.
The first step is to connect you to the mentors that will prepare you for raising your next round of funding, landing lasting customers who will be the cornerstone of your increased valuation, and finding experts who will serve as your guiding team for the duration of the program and potentially as your next team member.
At SURGE, we do not believe in wasting time learning about ideas and concepts that will never be applied in the field. We take the lean-approach. We design a program that is tailored specifically to you, your market, and your needs.
You are one step closer to becoming a SURGE company! Our name rings true … SURGE will absolutely accelerate your company. So prepare in advance for the following:
- Have a serious mindset and bring your A game.
- Stock up on sleep now because you will be pulling long hours, days, weeks … There will be time for fun, but the majority will be work.
- Invite your loved ones to visit with an empty stomach for spicy food because Houston will become your permanent residence during the program.
- All founders will be expected to participate in person, not spirit.
- Serial accelerator/incubator participants need not apply.
SURGE will accept applications until October 31. However, preference will be given to companies that apply early.
