NemoCo is a former terraforming and mining corporation that is credited with the discovery of the Nemo system in 2364. Founded by Jawahir Norman, Sandeep Ellis, Demont Mau, and Dae-ho Ochoa, it obtained most of its early equipment from the Tradmor Terraforming Concern when the company was struggling with legal problems. Soon after, NemoCo found a jump point in the Fora system and named the new system Nemo, an acronym of the founders' surnames. The company was prosperous for many years thanks to the vast oil reserves on Ergo (Nemo III). However, in 2704 NemoCo went bankrupt while attempting to convert outdated oil rigs into tourist destinations.
