In episode 47 of The Innovation Show we talk to change maker Bibop Gresta, co-founder and chairman of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies.
Bibop tells us about his past as a teen tech whizz, managing a department of developers while a teenager in school.
His subsequent stint at being a popstar and then an MTV presenter.
After selling his company he moved to California in search of a mission with meaning.
This meaning in fact found him, when he met his co-founder of Hyperloop Dirk Ahlborn. He is now chairman of what is dubbed the biggest startup in the world.
Hyperloop was made popular after an Elon Musk white paper outlining the possibility. It has been described as a cross between a Concorde, a rail gun, and an air hockey table.
That vision is now being realised by Bibop and a team of visionaries, scientists and contributors from all over the world.
Hyperloop is always looking for collaborators and more can be found on this movement on www.hyperloop.global.
