Hyper Poland is a pioneer Polish company involved in the development of hyperloop technologies. The idea was popularized by Elon Musk, an American visionary and founder of i.a. Tesla and SpaceX. His concept assumes driving the vehicle with the help of magnetic levitation in a tube in which air pressure is low and the air resistance is reduced. Thanks to the solution travelling very fast with low energy consumption is possible, and the journey from Gdansk to Zakopane would last 45 minutes, from Wroclaw to Warsaw 25 minutes.
While searching for a way to popularize their project and develop the product with new sources of financing, including large clients and State Treasury companies, Hyper Poland took part in the GammaRebels acceleration program powered by Poczta Polska. The GammaRebels program focused on logistics issues, work optimization, digitalization of branches but also on financial and marketing innovations. It lasted three month. At that time, Hyper Poland could benefit from a wide support package – up to PLN 200,000 non-returnable funding for development, training and consulting services in the field of intellectual property rights or running a business. The team valued the most the direct contact with the management and employees of Poczta Polska or Bank Pocztowy and assistance of professional mentor.
