Where To Find Us

New York & Boston, United States

We’re a global company by design, but, of course, we had to incorporate somewhere. Our founding members chose to incorporate in the United States of America and have representation in New York City and Boston.

Madrid, Spain

Madrid holds a special place in our hearts -our founders met there while doing their MBA and spent a significant amount of time developing the business from Europe. At least one of our team members is always enjoying the great tapas of Madrid.

Johannesburg, South Africa

As first location of our programs, South Africa also holds a special place in our hearts -we have very big hearts! Always looking forward to exploring ideas and opportunities in this fabulous country, our team members are based in Johannesburg.

Lima, Peru

Our second program location. Peru was chosen for it great potential, amazing people and ebullient nonprofit/social enterprise sector. Our team members are also working regularly from the fun city of Lima.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In 2014, Brazil hosted two big events: the FIFA World Cup, and Emzingo’s first ever program in this beautiful country. As part of our international expansion, we began operations in the vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro. And yes, we enjoy the occasional weekend trip to Sao Paulo.
