Virgin Group founder Richard Branson said that the investment was a good fit for the company ... The company will rebrand as Virgin Hyperloop One.

"Virgin Hyperloop One are leading the way in these efforts", he continued, noting that the company is "working on exciting projects in the Middle East, Europe, India, Canada, and the U.S.".

"Virgin has been known for investing in and creating innovative companies over the years, and I look forward to making history together as we bring Hyperloop to the world as Virgin Hyperloop One".
