EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- JumpStarter Inc. today announced it has reached out to SpaceX to feature Elon Musk’s Hyperloop concept on its recently launched crowd-powered platform, JumpStartFund.com. The Hyperloop “project,” which is now LIVE, will go through the platform’s standard “evolutionary” processes, that access the power of the crowd to vote, comment, vet, refine, and impact ideas in development - from conception to funding.
Once the JumpStartFund community has had their initial say (voting and commenting), vetted the Hyperloop concept and expressed interest to get it to the next steps, the project is then moved into a “work in progress” state where members will be further asked to collaborate on every aspect of bringing the concept to reality - participating in market research, voting on a number of issues (i.e.: design, naming, manufacturing, marketing, etc), coming up with additional ways of using the idea, and creating a team surrounding its development.
“We believe the world is full of entrepreneurs that have great ideas but do not have the time or resources to make them a reality,” said Dirk Ahlborn, CEO and co-founder of JumpStartFund. “JumpStartFund was built for that reason alone – to provide them with a place to bring their ideas to reality!”
