About EMC

Emerging Markets Coalition is a new 501c6 focused on normalizing banking for cash heavy markets. EMC’s sole current purpose is to drive active effective collaboration of the CRB and the FS industries in educating and advocating for transparent, secure, trackable and accountable legal cannabis money. Membership includes a diverse base of CRB and FS businesses across the banking and cannabis ecosystem – any company who pays or receives money, and agrees to EMC’s highest bar in Best Practices and Code of Conduct, may apply to join EMC.

Cash is opaque, making it difficult to track, trace, and tax, thus attracting criminal activity in money laundering, terrorist finance and human trafficking. Cash heavy markets can be a threat to the safety and security of our country, communities and schools.

EMC’s founders have done this before – converting legal cash-heavy businesses to mainstream banking – driving collaboration for success across all industry sectors and setting the highest bar for legislative/regulatory policy and rulemaking, industry Best Practices, and media optics. This has been done by leading collaboration of energy, resources, and connections – to drive greater certainty resulting in high sustainable growth, attracting investors, and gaining acceptance by governments, businesses, civic organizations and consumers.

Dan Henry
CEO – DAMA Financial
Co-Founder – EMC

“DAMA has joined EMC as a Founders’ Circle member to play a leading role in setting the gold standard for compliance and risk. The founders of EMC did this in prepaid…another cash intensive industry…and will do the same here but faster … to get out ahead of the speed of dramatic growth while assuring full transparency, security and trackability.”

Paul Bryant
CEO – CMoney

“The EMC and its members will provide the financial expertise needed to solve the current financial challenges that frustrate everyone who has a stake in cannabis industry — including business owners (who cannot secure banking services), political entities (who cannot collect taxes) and members of the public (who are concerned about the dangers associated with the accumulation of large sums of cash).”
