SurroundsMe was excited to present at #StartupParadise demo day with the Blue Startups and sister Energy accelerator at Demo day. A bit about Blue Startups, Energy Excelerator & Demo Day:
Blue Startups is a Honolulu-based venture accelerator founded by Henk Rogers (Tetris®). Blue Startups invests in and provides hands-on mentorship to capital-efficient and scalable-technology companies. The program lasts approximately 3 months where our startups gain a wealth of strategies, mentorship, and networking opportunities to build successful companies.
Energy Excelerator seeks startups with groundbreaking clean energy technologies. Selected companies spend a week in Hawaii working intensively with mentors, and win non-dilutive grant funding of up to $100k (for seed-stage companies) and $1M (for later stage companies). The purpose of the Energy Excelerator is to bring the most innovative clean tech from across the globe to Hawaii, the world’s best clean energy test bed.
Startup Paradise Demo Day is a showcase of the most recent batches of accelerator companies from Blue Startups and Energy Excelerator. The programs culminate in a Demo Day where they pitch their product to an audience of hand selected investors, press, and key VIPs.
