Our Mission

Join Us in Transforming How the World is Energized

Push boundaries. Envision a better future. Create impact.

We’re developing commercially-viable fusion power plants for the clean, safe, and accessible delivery of power at scale.

A key complement to renewables, fusion energy is a critical pathway to a zero-emission grid. We need plasma physicists, fusion engineers, supply-side managers, financial thinkers, and more to test the boundaries of what’s possible — and build new structures for people to interact with how we power the planet.

Meet the Team

We believe in a practical path toward sustainable energy.

Pathfinders are pragmatic.

They need to navigate uncharted territory while moving towards a destination. This is why we need change makers to join us in our mission.

We are obsessed with progress and meeting the demands of a changing climate. We are committed to creating a sustainable future that offers accessible fusion energy.

Get ready to change the world.
