  • Love for goTenna and our mission to build a distributed communication network from the ground-up!

goTenna creates distributed communication networks that increase scale, resiliency, and access. Communications is the keystone of all fundamental facilities and systems, but today’s infrastructure must evolve in order to meet 21st century needs. At goTenna, we are working on advancing universal access to connectivity by decentralizing it.

goTenna builds next-generation wireless architectures to power bottom-up communications networks that get stronger as they grow. We focus on low-power, low-cost, modular mobile ad-hoc networking protocols and devices that are easy-to-use and developer-friendly. Our parallel networks are designed to both enable completely off-grid communication and augment traditional systems by extending the practical edge of connectivity.

We care a ton about what we’re building — from both social and technological perspectives — and our team is a scrappy group, armed with a few rounds of venture capital from some really nice folks (incl. Union Square Ventures, Collaborative Fund, Bloomberg Beta, A16Z, Brooklyn Bridge, MentorTech, BBG Ventures, Walden VC). Our downtown Brooklyn loft is stocked with snacks, a nap room named after Freud, and friendly, smart people who like teaching and learning from each other.
