Nuno Lopes Head of Accelerator at Beta-i recommended Without Internet Technology where Gabriele is Co-Founder

Alessio and Davide are solid founders that have a strong product - in other words, investable. They know their stuff and execute at a consistent level. One of the best teams we have worked with in the accelerator program.

Ricardo Sequerra Early Stage Investor at Cherry Ventures recommended Without Internet Technology where Gabriele is Co-Founder

Alessio is a great founder and the SDK he and his team are building at WIT is a great example of how there's a need to build technology to solve the inherent problems related to connectivity in emerging markets.

WIT has the potential to have a key role in the development of the internet economy in emerging markets!

Gabriele Cavargna Bontosi Worldwide Special Project Manager at Brioni recommended Without Internet Technology where Gabriele is Co-Founder

Alessio and Davide’ secret sauce is a rare combination of enthusiasm, terrific execution and business acumen. Aside of being undoubtedly among the most talented and passionate tech professionals I’ve ever met, they keep on surprising me with an unparalleled ability to concretize concepts with uncommon vision and strategic mindset.

WIT Technology is a brilliant reflection of the above and has the potential to disrupt many sectors as we know them, by addressing the problem of connectivity in a variety of contexts and geographies.

Teresa Fernandes Mentor at Lisbon Challenge Accelerator Program recommended Without Internet Technology where Gabriele is Co-Founder

I do think that Alessio and Davide are addressing a real big problem, not only in developing countries and but also for world commuters as we are and need seamless communication regardless the conditions of the underlying network.
Alessio and Davide are strong committed to their vision and are technically brilliant to overcome the challenges they will face.
I have work with them as an advisor and I felt they are very coachable and adaptable, curious to understand the pains of the potential customers (the vertical industry segments) and at the same time they are focused and execute fast.
