Help shape the first Equitech city

Let’s GET STARTED!

UPSURGE TEAMS DRIVE OUR WORK THROUGH EXPERTISE, EXPERIENCE AND VISION.

UpSurge teams generate the strategies to nurture, support, attract, and retain entrepreneurs and startups at all stages, and from all backgrounds.

WHAT IS AN UPSURGE TEAM?

Teams are diverse, curated groups of hand-raisers from tech, industry, academia and the community. No long meetings discussing things you don’t care about, just focused conversations about the industry, sector or activity that you’re passionate about.

UpSurge teams develop three types of strategies for their focus area: quick wins, systems change opportunities and moonshots.

We provide the staff, playbook, team and T-shirt to get you started. You come ready to dig deep into how make Baltimore the first Equitech city from the perspective of the team you’re part of.
