With Engineers On Board, A Startup Is Driving The Hyperloop Idea Forward

After announcing a plan in August to take Elon Musk’s Hyperloop idea and run with it, Southern California-based JumpStartFund has recruited two respected engineers to lead the effort. Marco Villa, former director of mission operations for SpaceX and and Patricia Galloway, the first woman President of the American Society of Civil Engineers, will coordinate a month-long process of soliciting community interest and ideas for the project, which will culminate in JumpStartFund forming a company to pursue the development of the Hyperloop.
