For Fusion Projects Seeking VC Money.  Notes from the FPA Meeting.

Thank you to Michel Laberge of General Fusion for addressing barriers to fusion projects outside the mainstream.  Such projects seek capital from venture capitalists (VCs).  An endorsement from the mainstream fusion community can make or break the project.  Such endorsements are often withheld, perhaps due to institutional inertia or because there is insufficient peer review to allow for endorsement.  This creates an unnecessary barrier for engaging the private sector in fusion.

The possibility exists for a more constructive endorsement protocol that doesn’t compromise integrity.  The response, “I hope it works,” for endorsement requests was recommended as a starting point. 

There was also talk of setting up a “fast track peer review” protocol to accelerate review of projects that are attempting to raise funds from the private sector.
