Friday, October 12, 2012

Surge Accelerator, an organisation in Houston which aims to invest in interesting energy / oil and gas software, is taking applications for this year's intake, called "Class 2".

Successful applicants will receive $30,000 investment, an additional convertible note, 3 months of intense mentorship, and "access to the Texas energy ecosystem," Surge Accelerator says.

"If you know any promising entrepreneurs working on capital efficient energy ideas, please send them our way and have them apply on the SURGE site," says co-founder Kirk Coburn.

Companies in last year's intake, called "Class 1", have "landed pilots with major corporate players, received additional investments, and won recognition at other energy and entrepreneurial forums," Mr Coburn says.
