Exciting news from CMU Hyperloop

March 13, 2017

Dear CMU Hyperloop Backers,

Thanks for your outpouring of support. So far we raised nearly 60% of our crowdfunding goal! It's been an exciting few weeks. We submitted our design package to SpaceX on February 28th and are already scheduled to review our package with SpaceX next week.

We'd like to give special recognition to for their generous donation to the crowdfunding campaign and to Volvo for sponsoring us last year and inviting us to share our original pod design and the CMU hyperloop VR ride experience at ConExpo last week. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a sponsor, please reach out to to learn more. 

Only 22 more days left in the campaign. Let's do this! #BreakAPod

Update from the CMU Hyperloop team!

February 27, 2017

To Our CMU Hyperloop Supporters,

We're overwhelmed by everyone's support. As of this weekend we have crossed 51% of our fundraising goal!

We are heads down getting ready for our final design submission due TOMORROW, but we're feeling good as we're nearly done and will soon get to start physical validation. There are 3 weeks left in the crowdfunding campaign, so please continue spreading the word.

We can't wait to show you this summer what you've helped to build! For now, it's back to the grind. #breakapod
