In August 2013, Elon Musk published the Hyperloop white paper, detailing a new mode of transportation: a passenger capsule that travels at 760 MPH (1,220km/h). Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, Inc. (HyperloopTT) rose to the challenge of bringing the hyperloop to reality.

In his talk, Dirk Ahlborn, the CEO of HyperloopTT, will give the audience an insider's view into such a massive transformative project. The audience will learn why we need innovative transportation solutions, how to scale disruptive projects by using crowd-sourcing and crowd-collaboration, and what may come next in the world of the hyperloop traveling.
