World¡¯s brightest engineers, creative
minds and corporate partners unite to
form a worldwide hyperloop ecosystem
May 10, 2016: Hyperloop One (formerly Hy-
perloop Technologies) has evolved the com-
pany¡¯s brand to match the singular leadership
and incredible progress it has made towards
building the world¡¯s first full-scale Hyperloop.
The company has changed its name to Hyper-
loop One to coincide with a May 11 propulsion
open-air test (POAT) in North Las Vegas. This
historic milestone will be the first of many
full-scale tests by Hyperloop One as the com-
pany reinvents transportation to eliminate the
barriers of time and distance.
The company also announced the closing of
an $80 Million Series B Financing with on-
going investments from Series A investors
Sherpa Ventures, EightVC, ZhenFund and
Caspian Venture Partners. New investors in
the Series B round include 137 Ventures,

scale system later this year. No one comes close to our progress in com-
mercializing this revolutionary transportation system.¡±

Welcome to the future. High energy efficiency coupled with
electric propulsion yield an energy elegant, carbon free mode
of transportation. And to enable on-demand transport, Hy-
perloop pods are much smaller than most planes and trains
and are designed to depart as often as every 10 seconds.
