How can your early-stage innovative technology solution solve the world’s most pressing social and environmental problems?




Natural disasters can cause up to $1 Billion in cellular infrastructure damages and cripple country-wide cell networks, but the true cost can't be measured in dollars; it's measured in how many survivors trapped under a fallen building can't call first responders, or how many worried mothers can't call their children. Additionally, refugee camps and other last mile populations lack coverage because it's simply 'too expensive' to cover them. Beamlink tackles these problems by deploying mesh networks of small, portable cell towers that are affordable, power-efficient, easy-to-setup, and automatically connect to one another, providing an alternative to bringing in cell towers on trucks or sending in engineers to build/repair existing towers.
