Lord Puttnam’s aim is to broaden understanding of the opportunities in the sector.

Participants come from every type and size of organization – profit, nonprofit, government – representing a variety of industries.

Hyperloop - Wikipedia: "The Hyperloop is a conceptual high-speed transportation system put forward by entrepreneur Elon Musk, incorporating reduced-pressure tubes in which pressurized capsules ride on an air cushion driven by linear induction motors and air compressors. As of 2015, designs for test tracks and capsules are being developed, with construction of a full-scale prototype scheduled for 2016."

Hyperloop | SpaceX: "Since we first unveiled the idea for a new high-speed ground transport system called the Hyperloop back in 2013, there has been a tremendous amount of interest in the concept. We are excited that a handful of private companies have chosen to pursue this effort. Neither SpaceX nor Elon Musk is affiliated with any Hyperloop companies. While we are not developing a commercial Hyperloop ourselves, we are interested in helping to accelerate development of a functional Hyperloop prototype...."

How Much Apple and Other US Tech Companies Pay in Taxes

Infographic: How Much U.S. Tech Companies Pay in Taxes | Statista
Source: Statista

As the chart above illustrates, Apple is far from alone among tech companies in trying to pay as little taxes as possible. Apple and Google and other large tech companies have been accused of avoiding U.S. taxes by stashing foreign earnings in countries with lower corporate tax rates. When asked about his company’s tax avoidance practices in an interview with “60 Minutes”, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook rebutted the allegations saying that Apple pays “every tax dollar it owes”. He also criticized the U.S. tax code for being outdated in the digital age and claimed that Apple pays more taxes than any other company. While possibly true in total terms, it definitely isn't in relation to the company's outlandish profits. In 2014, Apple paid $13.97 billion in income taxes, which is more than what IBM, Microsoft and Google paid combined. But Apple’s effective tax rate (the average rate at which pre-tax profits are taxed) in 2014 was 26.1%, 2.5 percentage points below the average tax rate paid by S&P 100 companies in 2014, as well as the statutory federal income tax rate of 35%.
