EMURGO Global

EMURGO Global is a technology-driven company focusing on providing global blockchain solutions to enterprises, developers, and governments looking to incorporate emerging technology into their verticals or personal careers. EMURGO was founded in Japan and grew to become a worldwide presence in countries like Singapore, the US, Indonesia, and India.

From our inception in 2017 as a commercial venture arm of the Cardano project to EMURGO’s position today as a global technology leader, EMURGO has delivered best-in-class blockchain-based solutions for enterprises and individuals. We invest in startups, create enterprise-grade applications, develop educational curriculum, and offer advisory services to deliver more each day for individuals and enterprises.

Our premium portfolio of iconic brands, including Cardano, Travalla, Ergo, and more, is driving strong growth for us today. But, we are relentless, and never content with the status quo.

EMURGO is increasing its commitment to the Cardano ecosystem with the launch of a new $100 million Cardano ecosystem investment vehicle to accelerate the building of DeFi, NFT, and blockchain education tools on Cardano. For the launch of EMURGO Ventures, it announced its first seed investment into Milkomeda - a dcSpark sidechain project bridging Cardano and other Layer 1 blockchain protocols that will utilize wrapped ADA (wADA) as an asset.
