goTenna is a hardware startup founded by siblings Daniela and Jorge Perdomo, who came up with the idea after Hurricane Sandy when over a quarter of cell towers were downed and power went out, cutting access to wifi and cell service for people in the 10-state area affected by the storm. Beyond an emergency situation, the use-cases became apparent everywhere: hiking in remote areas, traveling, attending crowded music or sporting events, living in rural areas, and even communicating privately. The company's goal is to empower people to communicate directly using the phones they carry around every day, without having to rely necessarily on central connectivity. The company's first product is aimed at consumers, though goTenna aims to tackle institutional and emerging markets next in its effort to redefine communication according to need as opposed to access.
