What is a Hyperloop?
Hyperloop is an emerging transportation system popularized by Elon Musk that will one day transport humans from location to location at extremely fast speeds, whilst also being safer than air travel, more economically viable to travelers than traditional travel methods, and more sustainable for the planet. Here at Guadaloop, we perform a multitude of operations that revolve around the goal of bringing hyperloop technology to the world.
Who are we?
While it may seem like our subject matter is technical only, Guadaloop is not just an engineering team. Our team members have various talents and come from a diverse array of students majoring in engineering, computer science, business, economics, math, physics, psychology, and more. Our organization is broken down into three broad teams: Engineering, Business, and Media. Collectively, we are a group of entrepreneurs working together to gather and utilize resources efficiently to change the world. That takes a multidisciplinary team of future leaders with grit and fervor who won’t stop until they transform transportation.

A Mission to Change the World
Over the next year, we hope to make many improvements on our existing model of a hyperloop pod to compete at the European Hyperloop Week conference in July 2023. We are completely transforming our old pod by incorporating cutting-edge innovations like linear induction motors, magnetic levitation, and regenerative braking. No university team in the world has ever demonstrated a pod with our planned features. We’re ready to burst onto the world stage, guns blazing, Texas-style.
At EHW we do more than just compete; we connect with other teams and individuals with similar passions to us. We learn from others and gain crucial experiences as young engineers, businessmen/women, and entrepreneurs that will ultimately help us turn the idea of a hyperloop into a reality. We need your help to make our dreams a reality. Your funds will go directly towards sending Guadaloopers to Edinburgh, Scotland to compete at European Hyperloop Week! You could be the reason that an additional team member gets to attend this perspective-altering experience. It is crucial that we present at EHW—for our research, for our community, and for our team members. We want our teammates to be equipped with the most up-to-date knowledge and experience in order to make leaps towards the ultimate development of the hyperloop. The more funds we can raise, the more teammates can attend and grow from an unforgettable, life-changing experience. Thus, any donations that we can get to make our attendance at the competition a reality would be immensely appreciated!
