As the fugleman, I made a promise in 2010 that I was committed to leading SURGE for at least 10 years. Building a community takes time, blood, sweat, tears, fun, and cash. Brad Feld, an early supporter of SURGE, talks about taking the long-term view. Houston (and our industry) still needs a lot of hard work to see this vision realized. And SURGE is committed to playing its part. Many of our mentors and investors have contributed greatly to our cause. Thank you, because the work is only beginning.
