Daniela & Jorge Perdomo
Daniela and Jorge Perdoma grew up in Sao Paulo, but they’re both here in NYC now, as cofounders of goTenna, a device that pairs with your smartphone and lets you communicate with others even when you don’t have service. It allows you to send text messages, actually, and it’ll even work when your phone is in ‘Airplane Mode.’
She’s the CEO; he’s the CTO.
The idea for the company came out of pure frustration: Jorge was at a concert and having a hard time connecting with friends, due to connectivity issues. Daniela had issues due to Hurricane Sandy. They decided to do something about it. Together.
