Surna Featured in Entrepreneur Mag, HuffPo Media and More; Company Launches Surna.com Website 2.0

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2014) -  Surna Inc. (OTCQB: SRNA), an engineering and manufacturing firm that develops, acquires, produces and sells equipment with a current focus on the legal marijuana industry and the development of disruptive technology, today reported multiple, major media organizations outlets -- including Entrepreneur Magazine and Huffington Post -- have featured Surna and its role as a technology leader in the legal cannabis industry.

Separately, the Company noted it has upgraded its website, www.surna.com, to a more robust 2.0 which now includes a redeveloped Products & Support section for its high-end commercial product lines.

Entrepreneur Magazine, in its October 28 article states, "As legalization slowly but surely spreads across the country, growers will be looking for somewhere to turn to get specialized support, tools and resources for their unique craft. According to Bollich, success in cannabis tech lies in bringing a lot of disparate pieces together, like bioengineering, retail product development and the power of social word-of-mouth, to navigate an entirely new idea."

The article goes on to say, "Surna's is a system 'designed to specifically aid growers in solving their most pressing climate issues for maximum quality and output,' Bollich said."

The Huffington Post article, updated October 26, featured Surna's technological advances in the industry stating, "Since retail sales began in January, the Marijuana Industry Group (MIG) estimates about 10,000 people are employed in Colorado's marijuana industry, with thousands more being added each month. Behind marijuana production lies technology. Companies like Boulder-based Surna, a manufacturer of disruptive equipment for the cannabis industry, are developing patents to facilitate the aggregation of the industry, leading the way with their own proprietary services."

"Led by CEO Tom Bollich, a robotics engineer and co-founder of online gaming company Zynga, Surna has developed its own patented water-chilled climate control system designed for large marijuana production facilities... Surna's ultimate goal is to push the boundaries of the industry itself, maximizing yield and experimenting with different potencies and their health benefits."

In an August 25 article, All Business Experts, states, "Colorado, dubbed the 'Silicon Valley of pot,' has added thousands of jobs since legalization. Revenue in the first three months leapt from $14 million to $19 million, and shows no sign of falling. Those sorts of numbers have caught the attention of tech entrepreneurs in California and beyond, all of whom see a nascent industry in the early stages of stratospheric growth, ripe for disruption."

"Surna is led by Tom Bollich, co-founder of Zynga and one of the first tech entrepreneurs to spot pot's potential. 'Tom is here to merge tech ideas with the indoor agriculture industry,' says [Surna VP, Tae] Darnell. 'Companies like Surna have the responsibility to allow growers to grow consistent crops so that consumers, retail product manufacturers, and medical professionals receive a product they trust.'"
