WIT SDK allows mobile apps to receive and send data without internet connection by receiving sms.

Our vision is that internet businesses should work regardless of an available WiFi or 3g connection, we want to remove the connectivity barrier for digital companies and app developers to provide their services and stay in touch with their customers anytime.
In order to do that we have developed a protocol which allow mobile app to receive and send http requests offline using the SMS channel.

WIT SDK is a a small library to make great things.
The SDK will understand if the device have access to the internet, and
If the device happens to be offline that's where the magic happens.
WIT SDK will intercept the request and send it via sms to our server.
That request will then be resolved and the response will be sent back to the app.
The user won't even notice, the app will update as it will be with a slightly slow internet connection

What challenges are you solving?

1st Making data affordable

Most people in the world don’t have money to spend on data access.
With WIT end users don't need to spend a penny for receiving or sending data.

2st Hack the infrastructure issue

The infrastructure required to deliver the internet is extremely expensive to build, the broadband commission has estimated it will take 450 Billion dollars to bring the next 1.5 connected billion people online
WIT use the existing 2g infrastructure so it's ready to be used today.
96% of people in the world have access to 2g network, only 46% to the internet.

Nuno Lopes Head of Accelerator at Beta-i

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

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

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

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.
