Successful entrepreneurs including Peter Thiel, Paul Allen, and Jeff Bezos are investing in innovative nuclear fusion startup companies, such as Helion Energy, Tri-Alpha, and General Fusion. Lockheed Martin is building a compact fusion reactor prototype, looking at future markets. These approaches are leaner and evolve faster than large government or international fusion projects.

Startups may now apply AI to accelerate nuclear fusion. Innovative physics and AI technology provide nuclear fusion moon shots an opportunity to change the world, disrupting future markets with cost-effective abundant energy. The race to commercialization is accelerating, as investors make socially responsible long-term commitments. While each machine is modest compared to government or international efforts, their results point to multiple paths for commercialization of nuclear fusion. Come listen to a panel drawn from the frontier of commercialization of nuclear fusion.
