Want a Hyperloop in Your City? Get Your Pitch Ready
It's time to brush up on your PowerPoint skills, because you might be able to come up with a pitch that could see a Hyperloop built in your hometown.
Hyperloop One, one of the top companies trying to develop Elon Musk's idea for a super-fast and futuristic transit system, is currently looking for a city where they can build their Hyperloop, and they're holding a contest to determine which one it will be. Dubbed the Hyperloop One Global Challenge, cities around the world are eligible to submit, and must put together a "comprehensive commercial, transport, economic, and policy case" for their area.
While technically anyone can submit, they're more interested groups like transportation ministries, businesses, and urban developers. If that sounds like you, then all you have to do is come up with a pitch that "powerfully makes the case for how Hyperloop would not only transform passenger and cargo transport in your location, but also how that Hyperloop transformation will drive economic growth, generate opportunities for development, and create radically new opportunities for people to live anywhere, work anywhere, and be anywhere."
