EXPECTATIONS

We expect you to act as a true entrepreneur.  Your mindset should encompass the following: Take responsibility and be ready for change and/or moving fast. Know what you can control and take risks accordingly.  Learn from mistakes and be supportive of your fellow entrepreneurs.  Set correct expectations and be grateful.  

Having skin in the game is of the utmost importance.  SURGE strongly believes that a large determinant between success and failure lies in this one parameter.  You invest yours, and we will invest ours. 

You can expect to leave the SURGE 4 class with the command of running your company well within the energy industry.  This includes raising funds and attracting customers, building the correct team of support, and creating a sole niche with an established presence.
