Peter Diamandis, founder and executive chairman of XPRIZE, has a massive display of rocket ephemera, pop-culture collectables, keepsakes, trinkets and other paraphernalia lining his office bookshelves (on full display in the video below, btw). It speaks to his varied interests and broad-based career. For us, here at Hyperloop One, Peter also wears a couple different hats. He's not only a founding board member, but a juror for our Global Challenge.
If you're not yet familiar with the Hyperloop One Global Challenge, it's a first-of-its-kind competition, which aims to identify and select locations around the world with the potential to develop and construct the world's first hyperloop networks. We're seeking to collaborate with applicants who put their minds and talents to the test. If you have powerful ideas and are interested in reinventing transportation in your region to move cargo and passengers immediately, safely, efficiently, and sustainably so that your businesses grow, your economies flourish, and your communities thrive... then please, visit hyperloopchallenge.com and register now.
And as Peter says at the end of the above video: "Do an awesome job!"
