eMerge Americas is a platform dedicated to fostering innovation and entrepreneurship across the Americas. We’re a year-round platform that hosts a signature tech conference annually at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

At eMerge Americas, we’re transforming Miami into the tech hub of the Americas by partnering with the entire tech and entrepreneurial ecosystem, from government to higher-ed, startups to investors, corporate enterprises to media. We’re connecting the dots – between talent, capital and entrepreneurs.

And we’re telling – and amplifying – the stories of how Miami is transforming. We’re attracting the best and the brightest from around the world to come to Miami to launch, build, and successfully scale their ideas. The eMerge Americas Startup Showcase is a multi-week training program – at no cost – which culminates in a grand finale pitch competition in front of leading venture capitalists, corporate enterprises, government officials, and global media outlets at the annual eMerge Americas conference.

“The Startup Showcase is the heart and soul of eMerge Americas — it’s the cornerstone of our year-round programming and an anchor of our annual conference,” said Melissa Medina, President of eMerge Americas. “We have meticulously created programming to not only foster exposure to networks of venture capital funds and growth equity firms but also connecting stakeholders to nurture and scale the nascent technologies these innovative startups have created.”

“We believe the most compelling investment opportunities at a global scale will emerge from across the Americas,” said Felice Gorordo, CEO of eMerge Americas. “This has been a record year for venture capital investment in South Florida and throughout Latin America, and eMerge Americas seeks to be a catalyst for building sustainable startup ecosystems throughout the region by partnering with entrepreneurs, investors, large corporate enterprises, higher-ed institutions and governments in each market.”
