Your Business Development Platform

Umergence \ yü-ˈmər-jən(t)s \ was inspired by the word “Emergence”, which is a phenomenon of coming together to create something greater than the sum of its parts. 

Umergence is a business development platform that connects entrepreneurs with 3 types of capital: Intellectual Capital, Networking Capital and Financial Capital.

The Umergence platform allows entrepreneurs, inventors, makers, researchers, professionals, established companies and investors to work together in one place - building their ideas, forming teams, launching campaigns and raising capital. The site uses “wisdom from the crowd” to reduce startup risk, streamline tasks, quickly iterate business ideas, form functional teams and hire skilled workers for short or long term work contracts. Umergence provides entrepreneurs access to human resources with a service and job listing marketplace. Startups and accelerators can find talent in the crowd and manage it from their own dashboards. Investors can track the progress of teams or ideas in real time to scout investments, monitor growth and develop new prospects.

Umergence is a registered broker/dealer and FINRA member able to offer flexible funding options from security offerings to non-security reward and donation campaigns. Umergence is “collectively intelligent,” using a process of sorting ideas through voting. Information is tagged and searchable - making it easy to form communities of like-minded people with the natural give-and-take of a regular office or co-working space.  This is a platform designed for creative, driven, entrepreneurial-minded individuals and existing business owners looking for a productive network.  We welcome you to join the community today!

Our Mission

Umergence believes everyone deserves the opportunity to help create and invest in the ideas that will shape our collective future.


About Us

We started as founders from different backgrounds who shared a common vision.  That vision was to create something to help people capitalize on their potential.  We always had ideas, ideas we’d talk about casually, ideas we’d write down, even ideas we planned out in great detail.   The only constant was we never acted on any of them.  It would always come as a shock to see many of those things we’d talked ourselves out of become successful businesses.  After all those years of inaction we realized the biggest challenge was to simply get started.  Everyone has had great ideas that should find their way into the world, but it’s hard to know where to start.  Even when you do try to start, the fewer people you have supporting you, the harder it is to take those first steps.  So, we decided to create something that could help others get started.

Hailing from both technical and financial backgrounds, we realized our capabilities alone would not be enough to start the business we wanted. We needed other talent, talent we lacked to bring our vision to fruition. We amassed a team of great people: Web Designers, Application Developers, Quality Assurance Professionals, Project Managers, Accountants, Attorneys, and Marketers are just some of the people who helped build this platform and without which nothing would have been possible. We built the platform we wished existed.   

We always wished there was one unified platform where people could get feedback and help on their ideas, that could connect those ideas to funding, and to talented people just like the ones we needed.  This is that platform. This is your platform.  Whatever stage of development your idea or business is at, Umergence can be a partner to you.  We hope through its capabilities and continued improvement you will find great value in Umergence and that the community we create together will help foster your success!
