    Sequoia India invites Rapid Scale-Up Program for Start-ups in India & Southeast Asia

    Organization: Sequoia India

    Grant Amount: US $ 1.5 Million

    Deadline: 22nd February 2019

    Description:

    Surge is for early-stage startups that are based out of, or building for, India and Southeast Asia.  No stage is too early.

    The program is designed for a range of different founders. It could be someone with just an idea and a PowerPoint, or an early-stage company that already has product-market fit and a round of seed funding.

    What we’re looking for is a high-calibre founder/team with a compelling idea:

    Whether you are building a startup for consumer internet, deep tech, enterprise software, healthcare, fintech, medtech, blockchain or direct-to-consumer brands – we are keen to hear from you.

    Why Surge

  • Early design choices can make or break a company. There’s the additional challenge of when and how to raise the next round. The early-stage fundraising process can be draining for founders who often go through pre-seed, seed and multiple bridges before getting to Series A.
  • Surge, an initiative by Sequoia India, is designed to help you clear these hurdles. So you can focus on building your business.
  • Founders who join Surge get access to the kind of capital, community, company building support and cross-border experience they need to launch or accelerate their company.
  • Surge, which takes place twice a year, is open to companies who are based in, or building for, the India and Southeast Asian markets. Each Surge wave includes 10 to 20 companies and runs for 16 weeks.
