goTenna

/ Marketing director

About the company:

goTenna is a Brooklyn-based startup, building products that enable completely decentralized communication. We’re starting with an eponymous device that, paired with your smartphone, lets you communicate with friends even when you have no cell or data service. The first-and-only of its kind, this product successfully started shipping in October 2015 and moved into nationwide retail in 2016. We have various new products for both consumers and professional markets which we'll be releasing in 2017.

goTenna aims to become part of everyone's technology essentials, reducing our reliance on cell towers and wifi routers; and providing users the ability to create a network on their terms, anywhere in the world, free of charges or fees. It starts being useful when you're off-grid, but our technology can be part of the everyday communication stack. Our vision is to build bottom-up communication technology because we believe that in the near future instead of depending on hard-to-scale, geographically-constrained, expensive top-down infrastructure (i.e. tubes, wires, towers), connectivity will be created by people and the things around them in a distributed, modular, scalable way. Beyond B2C and B2B, we have designs on IoT and emerging markets.

We care a ton about what we’re building — from both philosophical and technological perspectives — and our team is a scrappy group, armed with a few rounds of venture capital from some really nice folks (incl. Collaborative Fund, Bloomberg Beta, A16Z, Brooklyn Bridge, MentorTech, BBG, Walden). 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.
