|These aren't true mega-corps, but are still wealthy and influential corporations.
This corp holds the patents on the strains of yeast that produce CHOOH fuel and a variety of other useful bio-tech items. Its cash rich and sits at the cutting edge in its field, but is quite a small corp in terms of numbers.
This company is growing very quickly in the field of computer hardware and software, but is nowhere near big enough to challenge the real giants of industry. Its seen as vulnerable right now, but given time its got the potential to grow into a major player.
With over 15 million clients worldwide, Trauma Team is a truly global corporation. While undeniably very profitable it is still a small corp in terms of manpower, and its assets are very spread out. Still, Trauma Team are renowned for handling themselves in skirmishes with other similar companies such as Meat-Wagon. While they are a leader in delivering all kinds of medical treatment, they are best known for their air-ambulance service. When you take medical insurance from TT, you are issued with a card. When you snap this card it summons a heavily armed AV ambulance from the nearest TT infirmary. They will go into heavy fire to extract you and they will perform any neccessary resuscitation work on the way to their high tech surgeries. In a typical urban environment they can be there within just a few minutes. This service runs to big, big bills - danger pay, parts, etc. People have been known to snap their card in order to just get extracted, again this has a severe penalty cost and is heavily discouraged.
This corp specialises in information gathering and analysis. They have networks in every major city, and can dispatch field agents to anywhere in the world. They have an enormous database of information which can be accessed for the right price.
This company specialises in creating huge mainframe computer systems. They supply major militaries and corps all around the world. Microtech would be a prime acquisition for any number of other corps - a fact which makes them very nervous.
