Fund-A–Shot—Thanks, and Let’s Do MoreMay 31, 2017
To get our research done, we need funds. Most of our resources still come from investors, but contributions are greatly needed as well. In the last few months generous contributors have funded several of FF-1’s shots—see our Fund-a-Shot page on our website. We thank these contributors for their help in making Focus Fusion a reality! But we need more help. To make the fastest progress we can, we need more funds to hire at least one more researcher. In addition, we want to look ahead and start purchasing long lead time material, especially beryllium, for modifications to our electrodes that will be suggested by future experiments. To do this, we need several streams of cash flow.
We hope very soon to enlarge our investor pool by using the new crowdfunding equity regulations to sell shares to smaller investors in the United Sates. But these regulations will limit the total number of these smaller shareholders to 500 individuals. Getting these 500 small investments will be crucial to our plans and we hope to raise $1 million this way. But we know that far more than 500 people in the world already want to help fusion to become a cheap, clean, safe and unlimited energy source. Two thousand people contributed in 2014 to our Indiegogo campaign. We will still need those contributions. If we could, for example, get 20,000 people to contribute just $2.50 a month, we could fund our entire present budget, and use investments to hire more people and to make the advance purchases we need. So, if you have not contributed to LPPFusion, please consider doing so now. Getting to fusion sooner will help everyone on earth.
