THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! LET'S CONTINUE OUR JOURNEY!

February 21, 2018

To all of our awesome supporters and donors:

 

Thank you so much for your generous support. We were able to reach 60% of our goal and will continue striving to invent the future of transportation. Hyperloop at Virginia Tech greatly appreciates your support in helping us achieve our ultimate goal of turning the hyperloop concept into a reality. 

 

Your donations will help us immensely as we shift our design towards an all-electric powered hyperloop pod for the next competition this summer. After submitting our Final Design Package, we have been approved by SpaceX to move forward to the next stage of the competition, where we will begin building our physical hyperloop pod for competition in California! For a full list of advancing teams, you can visit this website: http://www.spacex.com/hyperloop

Behind the Scenes of our New Video

With the launch of our campaign, we have been working hard on creating fresh new video on the hyperloop concept.

We can't wait for everyone to see it. We will say where we think the future of Hyperloop at Virginia Tech and the Hyperloop concept are going to go in the near future!

Thanks to Apex and Jack Sepple

Huge thanks for Apex Systems Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Virginia Tech Pamplin College of Business for hosting Jack Sepple, Senior Managing Director and Global Technology Officer at Accenture, here at Virginia Tech this weekend! On October 19th, we got the opportunity to learn about the importance of innovation for companies and his journey after he finished his studies at Virginia Tech. Then on the 20th, we got a fantastic opportunity to sit down with Jack and some members from The Innovate Entrepreneurial Living-Learning Community for lunch at Owens dining hall to continue learning more about his experiences. It was a great time getting to hear from Jack about his past experiences and getting advice on what we can do to be successful in a world where innovation becomes the forefront of every business.
