EMTECH GLOBAL IS A VENTURE STUDIO FOCUSED ON EMERGENT MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS FOR COMMUNITY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT WITH A PARTICULAR FOCUS ON EMERGING ECONOMIES.
What is EmTech’s version of “Venture Studio”? Is it the same as an accelerator?
The EmTechGlobal Venture Studio is similar to an accelerator in that the program is cohort-based and time-limited, and also incorporates mentor input and culminates in a demo event.
What we do
WE DESIGN THE CONNECTIVE TISSUE TO BUILD OR ADD VALUE FOR COMPANIES AND MUNICIPALITIES TO ENGENDER TRANSACTION.
We find the ends, locate flaws in the design model, and close the gaps. Doesn’t matter the context. We are global technological architects. We understand a lot about a lot. At the end of the day, though, its all about design. Either it’s good…or it’s bad…nothing happens for us human beings without design. Even if we choose to do nothing, its by design. We happen to be an excellent designers who have been trained by the best. We apply those same skills and use our own life experiences to elicit the best response possible across disciplines.
We find points of intersection, overlap, and interconnectedness across culture, languages, lexicons, and technologies.
WE ARE VENTURE BUILDERS.
