HOW CAN STARTUP SURGE HELP YOU?

Receive Feedback From Industry Experts

Before starting a business, you want to know that your idea holds value. By running your idea through our technology business experts, you will receive the right feedback from experts and local business leaders who know how to build, launch, and grow a successful tech company. Our mentors will work with you to validate your idea, offering suggestions wherever needed.

Find Your Path

There is no way to fully prepare for the twist and turns that come with starting a tech company. No need to worry, we will provide you with a how-to guide that details the questions that need to be asked, the research that needs to be done, and the deliverables you should have in order to apply to an accelerator or move past prototype phase.

Ask The Right Questions

At Startup Surge, we understand that sometimes all you need is a point in the right direction. We will provide you with a list of questions you should ask of your tech business.
