100 Cyberpunk Corporations

One hundred futuristic corporations that are open for business in your Scifi universe.

  1. Priceless Perception: A company that specializes in cybernetic replacement of the eyes and ears of extremely wealthy individuals so that they cannot perceive anybody below a certain income threshold.
  2. Remmeron – a corporation specializing in producing bioware and biological research. The largest shareholder is a vampire. Unknown to the public he portrays himself as a playboy who spends most of his night hours attending social affairs. His corporation is running secret research to create ways for the infected to walk in the daylight and Co exist with the general populous without being detected.
  3. Uropa: a corporation dedicated to deliveries. It owns the massive packing and delivering system of drones throughout the nation. Some say there’s a key (or keys) to be able to take control of the massive army of drones, but the President of the company, Dr. Drake Dorrinell, has said nothing to the press. Others also say Uropa partakes in illegal trafficking of people and drugs, hiding under the wealth and power of Dr. Dorrinell.
  4. The Immersion Institute: Dedicated to producing the most realistic simulated experiences available. Perhaps their trade secret is a dark one, extracting memories and experiences from its own unwilling customers.
  5. Waygo – A transportation service in the vain of Uber or Lyft, except the vehicles are completely self-driving, they also deal in long haul freight services as well. They have cornered the market on land based transportation and over the last 20 years they have bought and dismantled nearly all traditional car manufactures and converted their factories to facilitate the maintenance of their self driving fleet. Their economic power is derived from the boon in metro living. They have used their influence to lobby nearly all major cities to outlaw manually driven cars, under the guise of keeping the roads safer. This however, only strengthens their position, creating a monopoly over transportation within the metro areas. They lobby heavily to loosen or rewrite the regulations regarding self-driving-car safety and their social media division works hard to AstroTurf positive news about their brand while discrediting the news of deaths, accidents, and other unfortunate incidents involving their vehicles. Their long haul trucks are often referred to as Meat Grinders by folks outside of the metro area due to their complete lack of object avoidance protocols. Incidents of Waygo Truck related deaths have been investigated in the past, but there are rumors that the AI at the core of Waygo not only manages the navigation of vehicles, but also operates a sanitation protocol for all of the government mandated camera logs as well. With all the misinformation being spread by Waygo itself, it’s almost impossible for the average metro citizen to know what is true and what isn’t. However, for all the folks still trying to make a living in the Midwest ghost states, the grim reality is that traversing the Waygo funded roadways offers more risk than reward.
  6. DeltaSafe – a security and body-guarding corporation staffed entirely by modified clones of the same woman – Delta Degree.
  7. Advanced Bionics: Was on the cutting edge of human augmentation 40 years ago, but are now a shell of their former selves. They produce outdated tech at a relatively low price.
  8. The Farm, specializing in lab-grown protein-based foods, a.k.a. artificial meat. The process is highly automated, and requires specialized (and trade-secret) raw materials to grow their product.
  9.

The zealously defended company secret is the illegally potent genetically enhanced ant hormone treatments in every item of clothing the company produces.

It’s an open secret that they have eyes on every corner of the city, thanks to a backdoor to each of their products and a team of vigilant ‘Oracles’ watching the streams, and is often the first visit of any shady customer looking for information.
  29. The Darwin Institute – A cross between a business and a university, dedicated to the ‘art’ of genetic modification. More often than not this results in the catastrophic release of titanic rampaging monstrosities or armies of brutal mutants that somehow end up in the employ of terrorist groups. People are not sure how they manage to still qualify for grants, question how they have not been shut down with extreme prejudice and wonder where the hell their warped understanding of darwinian theory came from but nonetheless, their ‘successes’ such as the super cow that provides affordable high-grade kobe beef and extreme male enhancement hormones still get use within the populace. Even barring the side effects, such as the aforementioned rampages (From both the cow and the male enhancement).
  30. Martin-Giuliani Cloning and Genetics LLC – Named after and run by the top experts in cloning and genetic manipulation, Christopher R. Martin and Leonardo Giuliani, MG-CG LLC is the leading factor when it comes to biomedicine, flash-cloning, disaster relief, pleasure, and military. MG-CG LLC has its fingers in many different pies.

Sometimes Biomechanical wonders to turn the tide. Why send one man into the field when you can send seven of him? Or even an army of Clones made from a few Originals to lead them?
  31. Karham Safety Equipment Co. – Shrouded in controversy, the Karham corporation throws all subtlety out of the window and openly advertises their arsenal of compact high-caliber firearms alongside locks, safes and the like. The company prides itself on providing anything one could need to protect their property. In Karham’s mind, this includes, among others, a flashy purse that unfolds into a .50 cal sub-machine gun. The advertisements promise that their weapons have been tested for maximum stopping power on foreign fronts. They’re pretty reliable, though, so who cares.
  32. The Vladnic Corporation – Whatever the occasion, whatever the budget, this private security firm can provide exactly what you need. From single bodyguards to teams of well-armed security forces, if you have the credits you will be safe. In addition to the muscle, the Vladnic Corporation also offers the latest security technology, including fully integrated automated defense solutions and total-coverage ID scanning.

These employees are sourced directly from the military to defend an individual for a short period, perfect for a high-risk transaction or dangerous journey.
  33. Ranberg – The largest housing supplier in the district, Ranberg offers homes from mere credits through to luxury mansions. With a strict non-eviction policy, Ranberg will happily house even the most destitute of society, providing a warm place of comfort while they get back on their feet.

  34. StrawMan – A former subsidiary of Al-ASA/Great air before the company was destroyed, StrawMan survived the riots following the revelation of the Great Air Hoax by sheer luck. A water refiltration company, StrawMan is marked by modest profits and an especially paranoid management.
  35. Vermeer Wiring- An internal electrical company, Vermeer is also a shadow audit organization, investigating for multinational companies and keeping local corruption manageable. Most of their own employees don’t know about that side of the business.
  36. Entropy Incorporated – A large company that everyone knows about, but no one really knows what they do, exactly. Their buildings appear everywhere, and are instantly recognisable due to being entirely jet black, with black tinted windows. Looking through said windows are usually met with dark gas and shadowy figures rushing about. Every now and then, products with their label shows up, but they never work like normal ones would, such as a refrigerator that cools down food by shunting heat into a miniature void, or a marker that writes by rearranging a material’s molecular structure to reflect the set color. There is no set type of product, with objects ranging from weapons to kitchen appliances bearing their name. No one knows exactly where they come from, but each are master crafted, being able to outperform any other product of the same type, and impossible to disassemble, with no visible seams or screws. The company’s logo is a white orb with 4 large arrows that extend from it towards the cardinal directions and another 4 smaller ones that extend between them, creating an 8 pointed star set around a circle.
  37. Akursor – Simply a modern firearm brand which produces in America. It is said that the steel used in their insanely well protected factory halls is not always paid for and someone spread a rumor of titanium parts being actually re-cycled cyberorganics of killed cyborgs. Akursor’s CEO Vincent Maren is well known for his blog posts and straight to the face interviews in which he calls cyborgs and implants in general a cheap trick for ‘genetically weaker’ people to survive. He however has also won the trust of many because of his multi-racial programs plus he married a troll woman. His hatred is geared towards implants in general. Which nobody knows: Maren is terribly afraid of doctors and hospitals too. The weapons by Akursor do not come with any neural interface linking. They are simply really modern guns.
  38. Samsara Corporation – Founded by the enigmatic visionary Sri Chandrasekhar, Samsara revolutionized energy production, weaponry, and most aspects of travel with the Samsara Multiverse Conduit System. By using the difference in ground state energies between two universes as the catalyst, SMCS systems open small, temporary portals, which allow for abundant and varied uses. Multiverse Conduit devices can provide nearly limitless power by connecting a generator to the magnetic field in the heart of a neutron star, allow for antigravity fields to be generated by targeted application of higher gravity fields from nearby black holes, and even have applications on the battlefield. SMCS warheads are specifically forbidden by treaty, but all manner of directed energy weapons and rail gun systems have a Samsara unit at their heart, to say nothing of the Projectile Interdiction system that can puff oncoming fire into a perfectly harmless alternate universe, with just the hint of brimstone odor.
  39. Suborganic Microsystems – A newly founded company operated and funded by a shadowy individual known only as ‘Mercy.’ The corporation is currently occupied performing secretive research into new applications for existing nanobot technology. Their first and so far only product has been a way to reprogram nanobots designed to help in reproductive dysfunction to instead modify a mother’s child before it even enters the womb, effectively turning the future child into a slave pre-programmed to some day do the drone owners bidding. On face the company does not seem to sell this program to the public, bartering only with governments and special interest groups but with the right connections perhaps it is possible to acquire some of these reprogrammed nanobots. Perhaps in the future ‘Mercy’ may even have more products to offer their secretive customers…
  40. Ameratsu Light Incorporated – Specializing in fiber, optical and digital transmission of data. Ran by a board of 9 individuals that has their headquarters built underground near Hong Kong. They have several branches, most notably, one in LEO(Low Earth Orbit) called the Overdome. Heavily involved with corporate data transfer and military asset overhaul. ALI is responsible for updating military gear to the latest in data transfer and sharing technology.
  41. Tanuki Excavation Enterprises – A corporation Specialized in creating, maintaining, assessing and infiltrating Underground complexes. Orphelia H. Dachs has turned her families rather conservative Digging-Company into a multinational mercenary Pool, that is well known for using heavy machinery to get the job done.
  42. ProcTec – A food processing company, with proprietary ownership of a new-age food processor that can remove the most harmful parts of reconstituted meat and mix in spices. Ran an incredibly successful marketing campaign, Process It!, that demonstrated the uses of the processor.

  44. Robert Construction – A spot construction business known for high prices for extremely quick work. Owned by former child actor Robert Teh. Need a 37-story tower on a current vacant lot? Call Robert Construction, and it can be up before sunrise. Need a clear line of sight to the CEO’s picture window and a quick egress? Robert can build it.
  45. Someone’s Child – A large arms corporation, exclusively dealing with nonlethal weaponry. Owned by Obijbwe Adikadat, a former mercenary and decorated sniper.
  46. Sincorporated – Sells supposedly ‘blessed items’ that, while normally illegal, are ‘guilt free’ because ‘the lord wanted you to have them!’ They use religious exemption laws to dodge lawsuits and court cases left and right, and the government’s constantly looking for a concrete piece of evidence to pin them down like the cockroach they are.
  47. Unitech – A mega-corp that specializes in Private security and corporate and financial services. Unitech also manufacture their own power armor weapons and space vehicles. They lead the field of non-lethal weapons such as EMP, expanding foam and Sonic weapons.
  48. Zyodine – Tech leaders in Stealth tech, computing, augments and space craft shield and energy weapons. A heavily Asian influence in style.
  49. UCI (United Conglomerates of Industry) – UCI is more like a culture that a Corp. The tribal nature of its workers mean that they rarely pass on their skills and information to anyone out side their guild (Tribe). UCI specialize in massive structure building, mining and manufacture of arms and equipment. UCI Power armor has been described as ‘Like wearing a JCB digger.’
  50. Pantheon – War is an Art form. Pantheon are weapons specialists. If you want to kill a lot of people and look like a mythical god doing it, Buy Pantheon.
  51. Gaia – Terraforming corp that has reinvented the field of bio-synthetic augments and power armor. These ‘living’ devices can change a body while acting and looking like it was born there.
  52. CrashingSnow – holographic display company with some bad rep. Allegedly the people that use too much the display get white noise sometimes.
  53. Meat Market Incorporated: A subsidiary of one of the powerful, earth-biased mega-corps, MMI offers ‘bargain priced!’ bio-modifications and gene-modding for low income individuals. MMI Fleshsculpters and doctors are known for their ‘no-questions asked’ policy, which works out well for the criminals that frequent the MMI clinics, in order to get a leg up on their rivals.
  54. Ursine Securities: A massive PMC, infamous for crushing the ‘Free Mars!’ rebellion during the One Year War. Ursine Securities makes use of a mix of expendable clone soldiers, genetic war beasts, and gene-modded special forces troops, during its deployments, in order to keep the opposition on its toes. Is currently taking contracts at the individual and tactical level, but the bulk of the company’s forces are deployed on Trappist-1, where they are engaged against House La-Paz’s troops.
  55. The Forge: A Co-op comprised of some of the finest engineers, scientists, and craftsmen in known space, the Forge is the bleeding edge of technological advancement. However there are a few caches: the items for sale are always a limited run, are impossibly priced, and usually whatever the co-op felt like producing at the time. It’s usually worth it though; The Lunar Hegamony ended the power of the mega-corps after annihilating their holdings and forces with Forge produced black-hole bombs.
  56. Ungula Tech – Originating from a twen-cen recreational stim company, Ungula has evolved into a full-spectrum sim-stim provider. They provide everything from nanite-enhanced digital mindscapes to SimSense virtual nerve recouplings. Granted, most of their offerings aren’t strictly legal to experience for customers, but legal wrangling has still kept it legal to sell for the company. Repeated attempts to genetically engineer the company’s historical mascot have met with creatures suicidal with existential angst. The company produces dozens every year, anyway. After all, they might get lucky.
  57. Schemä – A luxury fashion company that designs outfits that require extensive body modification to wear. Currently embedded in scandal as a competitor exposed Schemä’s involvement in and cover up of an influencer’s death as a result of surgery to fit their fall line up.
  58. Pulze – A company known for their heart implants that records data on your internal organs in order to track your overall health. The company was recently purchased by a larger conglomerate who used Pulze as a dumping ground for their debt, causing it to go bankrupt. The shut down of the server has lead to many of the adopters suffering heart failure due to the failing implants.
  59. Classic Steel, Incorporated: The intellectual property/trademark owner of a virtual who’s-who of once famous weapon brands that have been reduced to little more than a set of logos and overseas manufacturing contracts. All the guns you saw on the vid screen growing up? They make them, cheap, effective, completely devoid of tracking hardware or network-enabled components, and with the serial numbers struck exactly as deep as the law requires and not a single thousandth of an inch more. Want John McClane’s Beretta 92? They can send it to you overnight, and take no responsibility if you load it with APDS rounds. Want Snake Plisskin’s MAC-10? You got it, along with a guide sheet of where not to take your Dremel tool lest you convert the gun to full automatic and void your warranty. John Rambo’s M60? They can give you a bulk discount.
  60. SecondScape- an Augmented Reality corporation that gets its main source of revenue through the ads populating its AR. SecondScape users can use the ‘free’ version indefinitely, allowing them to see, interact with, and within a monthly limit, add features to the AR. They could also buy the ‘premium’ version with a weekly subscription, allowing them to briefly dismiss ads and removing the limitation on content creation per month.
  61. Engrammatics Inc.- originally a small startup without the backing of any megacorps, Engrammatics quickly took off due to a lack of competitors in its field. If you’ve ever wanted to learn everything you can about a new hobby, impress your friends with sick skills, get your kids qualified for the top schools- or hell, skip that and just qualify them for the workforce right away, you’ve come to the right place. After the installation of a modified neurojack, it’s easy as pie to insert Engrammatics’ patented neuro-translational learning (NLC) chips, so you can download whatever skills or know-how you need.
  62. Blackdawn Rise- operating a pocket dimension has never been easier! Thanks to the development of novel, precise, safe subspace isolation technology, Blackdawn Rise offers you (for a low monthly fee per cubic foot plus substantial extra fees for certain activities, such as landscape relocation or abnormally-sized transfer portals) the ability to create your own personal paradise, no questions asked. If you buy the SubSafe package, they’ll even encrypt the signals needed to access your pocket dimension and anonymize all records pertaining to its access! …supposedly.
  63. Sukhbataar Enterprises- in a world that wants to take away your guns, you should never be without ’em. Sukh-E offers a great way to hide your firearms and holdouts, by installing undetectable concealed compartments within your body. The parts are guaranteed to interface just fine, regardless if they were installed in flesh or bionic, and can activate with a neural command to put weapons in your hands whenever you need them. Newer models use forced-relativity technology so that you can stuff improbably large weapons inside your body.
  64. Podnet- want immortality? Does the prospect of continuing your existence in the cold, hard shell of a gram-descendant robot fill you with dread? Does the idea of other people holding on to a computerized version of your personality scare the living daylights out of you? Then Podnet has an offer for you! We don’t ask for your brain scans- we just need a genetic sample! As long as you’re wearing the Podnet Reactive Engram Backup (REB) brace, when you die, we’ll activate a clone of yours and transmit your consciousness at the last possible second! Of course, if you’re the kind of person who loves yourself so much you just wish there were more of you, we’re in that business too. We can grow up to a specified number of clones and sync your minds together for the true multiple consciousness experience.
  65. Solon Arco- everyone’s seen their products, even if they don’t know their name. Solon Arco runs the sanitation and ecological regulation of nearly every arcology in the world, and expects to fully buy out all other arco-engineering companies within the next two decades. This is the one megacorp that no other institution is willing to lay a hand on. If you’re an employee, sure, everyone hates you for being a sellout, but you have a real healthcare plan, an actual chance for one of your grandchildren to eventually retire, and you get sick days about once every two years! Higher-ups in the company can routinely afford stuff like immortality protocols and their own personal hoversporters. The company itself is practically untouchable in any legal or fiscal sense.
  66. MEGA- a space-transportation company that ironically advocates for the superiority of Earth. Their advertising department creates propaganda about how great it is to live there (or, you know, anywhere inside the asteroid belt), while also creating conspiracy theories and disasters in deep-space habitats to make them seem like terrible places to live. MEGA runs most of the shipping and transportation in the Sol system, and owns a lot of living space on Earth and the other Center Habs.
  67. Data Breach – We get it, sometimes people make mistakes and information gets out that was not supposed to. But don’t worry Data Breach understands and is willing to help! If our viruses capable of shutting down and deleting data doesn’t help, our large selection of mechanical assassins equip for any job will. And best of all, you and your company can remain anonymous while we do our job to ensure your information is safety from getting into the wrong hands. Remember when the data starts leaking we at Data Breach will make sure that leak gets patched up.
  68. Sharpten Pharma- a big producer of stimulants, sober agents, and anti-addiction supplements. Their stims, colloquially known as ‘sharps’, enjoy widespread use in para/military orgs. Conspiracy theorists would have you believe that the anti-adds are just experimental drugs that Sharpten pushes out onto the market in order to get loads of human test data; there’s certainly a lot of anecdotal stories out there about how the anti-adds mess with users’ metabolic and neurological effects without actually addressing addiction behavior, so they might be on to something.
  69. XO Farms- leaders in innovative means of healthy superfood production, XO grows crops and gengineered animals in expensive space installations. The rich pay exorbitant prices for the supposed health benefits of spacegrown food. To drive the idea home, the things they sell aren’t things we’d consider expensive, Whole Foods-style superfoods today e.g. potatoes or carrots. Think of rich people treating bland mashed potatoes and baby carrots as New Age guilt-free haute cuisine.
  70. ReduxX- clientele wear well-hidden (or implanted) tracking and sensory gear to record their daily lives. This stores everything from the surroundings to the client’s biometrics. At a ReduxX-compatible simstation, a client can upload their experiences, share them, go through others’ experiences on their public profiles, and relive past experiences using a limited AI to simulate what would’ve happened if the client had made different choices in that experience. ReduxX openly and shamelessly sells the information it gets from its clients to interested agencies, especially news outlets and developers of next-gen predictive analytics.
  71. The Human Spectrum- this genmod corporation ‘believes strongly in the strength of the human race’. Everyone is a person, regardless of what physical flaws they might have, so their mission statement argues that ‘traditional’ genmodding, with its goal of physical perfection, is unethical and dangerous. Rich people who desperately want to be part of a counter-culture go to The Human Spectrum’s clinics to bring out physical ‘flaws’ in their family genetics (ranging from receding hairlines, minor allergies, or crossed eyes to albinism or legitimately threatening ‘flaws’ like sickle cell anemia or muscle wasting), or just straight up add disabilities to themselves to feel more ‘natural’. In an era where all the rich can be physically perfect, physical imperfection is the hot new thing.
  72. NuTune- do you ever feel like your voice just sounds like crap? Hate cheapening out with a vox-box to make it sound better? NuTune can fix your voice without any need for bionics. Thanks to nanosurgery and regenerative medicine, NuTune can transform even the squeakiest, most horribly accented voice into a beauty at any pitch! It can even fix speech impediments, or so goes the claim, and clients can order from a list of popular voices or come up with their own. Want to sound like Darth Vader? Aretha Franklin? Your favorite 0g rugby commentator? It’s all possible with NuTune.
  73. Ya’at’eeh- A broadcasting company focusing on narrow, careful and shielded broadcasting waves, coded messages, and communications. There is rumored to be a master list in the company’s central offices with information on every customer.
  74. Black Gold: although they started out as a petrochemicals company in the mid-1950s, after dozens of rebrands and strategy changes, this energy company now sells predominantly biosynthetic fuels manufactured in vast aerostat and orbital farms. Although battery technology has come a long way, if you want to fuel a jet fighter or a rocket, weld or cut a metal, make a plastic part, or lubricate a machine, BG probably supply a fluid or a gas to suit. Held in private hands since their inception, aside from occasional ‘legally innovative’ part-flotations on cooperative stock exchanges, the operations of this firm are simultaneously very visible and very secretive. They tackle competition hard and ruthlessly by dumping against competitors, and it’s rumored through the occasional black operation as well.
  75. C&P Futures: Based out of several truly enormous datacenters, this corp (originally Cassandra-Pandora Futures) sells just one thing: predictions of the future. They are never, ever, ever wrong, though sometimes enigmatic or opaque in their public statements, which they make only occasionally and usually on matters of pressing import. Buying their insight is expensive even by the standards of the uberwealthy, and their operations are enigmatic to say the least: nobody has ever met an actual representative of the corp in person. It communicates only via spokespeople and, occasionally, lawyers; every customer interacts only with a neutral, effortlessly polite, androgynous voice on the other end of a telephone. The firm seems to have no employees at all, and no obvious CEO or other senior staff, and it’s held by a web of legal vehicles and off-planet corporations that exceed even the usual standards for a megacorporation. It has never specifically commented on the rumors floating around the ‘net that the corporation is actually a front for a sentient AI which absorbed a quantum computing startup and a number of prediction markets in the early century. But they’re just rumors.
  76. Viridian Dynamics: A Contract Research & Development Corporation. Will research anything for a price. Anything from weaponized pumpkins to advanced productivity chairs to advanced cryo-preservation solutions. You are better off asking for Ted if you need help.
  77. TiNatus- An explosives company that focuses on implantation of explosive material in inconspicuous items. Famous for a series of amusing advertisements, declaring ‘anything can be a bomb!’

  79. The Company Under the Bed – Insanely wealthy parents pay this company to genetically engineer bodyguards for their children based on their crayon drawings.

  80. The Re-Write: A social media influence corporation which promises to allow its users to alter their internet footprint and replace their comments ‘with what you realize you should have said.’ The company has faced lawsuits for allegedly changing the comments of what non-customers have said, but no one has been able to produce any proof.

Unlike most theories as to the resultant persona, the AI, also calling itself Matchwell, showed no interest in world domination or anger with humanity- instead, it arranged for its own transfer to an unknown location; however, prior to leaving, it created a stable version of the program, carefully altering the source code to ensure that artificial intelligence would not be easily recreated.

Pepsi-Coca//Coca-Pepsi: Once bitter rivals, the merger between the two food empires resulted in the longest running legal battle in history over the resulting name of the conglomerate, currently entering it’s 8th decade. 2 years ago, a momentous leap forward was made; legal teams for both sides mutually agreed to stop the practice of drone-enforced lawsuits against private citizens using the preferred terminology of the opposing brand, so long as the citizens in question immediately follow that terminology with the opposing brand identity. Thus the towering HQ of the still thriving megacorp displays an ever-rotating hologram. PEPSI-COCA
