Founded by Martin Casado and Mariel Triggs, Oakland-based MuralNet has brought reliable high-speed internet to more than a third of tribal lands nationwide with little to no connectivity as well as successfully lobbied the FCC to allow tribes to obtain their own broadband licenses. They have worked with Tribes to build dozens of pilot and expansion internet networks so far  at a fraction of the cost of building a new cell tower. They also assisted Tribes in aquiring spectrum licenses that can bring broadband to 750,000 people on Tribal lands across the nation. The pair is also training tribal leaders at each build site, so they can operate and maintain their new high-speed internet networks. This life-changing connectivity allows teenagers to learn online at home, emergency services to communicate in real-time, and patients to access telemedicine
