Where To Find Us

New York and Boston, United States.

Emzingo Group is an international 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.

Madrid, Spain.

Emzingo Group founders met in Madrid while doing their MBA and spent a significant amount of time developing the business while living in Europe. One of our team members is always enjoying sunny Madrid.

Johannesburg, South Africa.

As the first location of our programs, South Africa holds a special place in our hearts. We always look forward to exploring ideas and opportunities in South Africa. Our operations in this dynamic country are based in Johannesburg.

Lima, Peru.

Our second location. Peru was chosen for it great potential, amazing people and ebullient nonprofit/social enterprise sector. One of our team members is regularly working from the up-and-coming 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 trip to Sao Paulo.
