“Migo is neither a technology nor a service. Migo is a vision. The vision of a boy from New York City who has been wandering the world since 1975. A global vision that stands for a different way of thinking. A habit of imagining a new future and then persevering to attain it. A vision wherein each Imagineer melds a humanist heart with the mind of a technologist, and the soul of an entertainer. A vision that will take Migo on a journey around the world, bringing entertainment and education to everyone.”
--Barrett Comiskey, Founder & CEO

Headquartered in Taipei with primary operations in the Philippines, Migo is a one-of-a-kind service that harnesses technical innovation to deliver accessible and affordable entertainment and education to billions of consumers who live on $5-$10 a day, in markets such as the Philippines, Indonesiaand Africa. Migo's technology, a combination of hardware and software developed in-house, is designed specifically for the unique infrastructure and economic challenges that exist in our markets. We have designed, built, and tested which is uniquely capable of serving the most price- sensitive consumer by cutting the costs of delivering data by 100 times.
We are a young, ambitious, and innovative company pursuing a transformative mission. We are currently expanding operations in the Philippines and preparing to scale in the region.
Migo致力於解决開發中國家(如菲律賓，印尼，印度等) 三十億消費者對於娛樂及教育資訊不易取得的窘境。相較身處台灣，取得光纖與第四台有線電視的服務就像打開水龍頭一般自然，這些市場往往基礎建設落後，網路普及率低，購買力也較不足， 多數民眾難以獲取在先進國家的豐富數位資訊與內容。目前Migo已深入菲律賓市場，以獨創的技術與硬體設備，讓消費者以親近的價格於我們佈設的熱點下載影音內容，並能夠於行動裝置上離線觀看，不再受到網路的限制。
