Sequoia's Surge onboards 15 startups for its seventh cohort

The seventh cohort of Surge, the accelerator programme run by Sequoia Capital India, has surged successfully. This cohort consists of 37 founders from 15 early-stage startups.

Surge combines up to $3 million of seed capital with company-building workshops, global immersion trips and support from a community of exceptional founders.

Attentive, Beam, Boxs, BuyerAssist, ClearFeed, Gan, Hatica, and Metaschool are included in the seventh cohort. PixCap, Pratech Brands, agritech platform Semaai, TrueFoundry, Unravel Carbon, and Whiz are additional firms in the cohort. The accelerator withheld the name of the fifteenth startup in the seventh cohort for the time being because the travel-related startup is currently in stealth.

In their blog Surge shared, one-third of the startups in this 16 week long program have at least one female founder.
