Based in Houston, Texas, "The Energy Capital of the World", SURGE is a leading seed fund and mentor-driven accelerator that identifies, invests in, and enables entrepreneurs who are solving the world's energy problems. SURGE identifies leaders, validates business models, raises capital, and connects startups to customers and the global energy ecosystem. SURGE has recruited over 150 of the world's top scientists, engineers, executives, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and angel investors to serve as mentors. SURGE is ranked in the Top Ten accelerators in the US. Since May 2012, portfolio companies have raised Seed and Series A funding of over $25M.

Join SURGE and elevate your business to the next level!

The 4-month SURGE program is designed to provide 3 stages of support:

Market Validation - SURGE helps companies develop relationships with mentors and industry experts who will provide expert feedback on all aspects of the business. Companies solicit feedback, refine their business models, and develop market entry strategies.

Scaling Operations - SURGE makes crucial customer introductions to help companies land pilot projects and enter new markets. Mentors help companies address the new challenges that accompany scaling a business.

Raising Capital - SURGE prepares entrepreneurs to raise funding after they graduate from the program. Each company presents at SURGE Day in front of a targeted audience of 500+ investors, industry executives, and media. SURGE also helps with investor introductions, term sheet negotiations, and due diligence preparation.
