ABOUT THE COMPANY:goTenna is a Williamsburg, 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. goTenna aims to become a part of everyone’s technology essentials, reducing our reliance on cell towers and wi-fi routers, and providing users the ability to create a network on their terms, anywhere in the world, free from charges or fees. We care a ton about what we’re building — from both philosophical and technological perspectives — and our team, which started to work together at the NYC Resistor hackspace, is a scrappy group (6 FT + 2 interns), armed with a seed round of venture capital from some really nice folks (incl. Collaborative Fund, Bloomberg Beta, Andreessen Horowitz, Brooklyn Bridge, MentorTech). Our office is stocked with snacks and friendly, smart people who like teaching and learning from each other.
