Deborah is co-founder of AirLev, a transportation startup composed of engineers from University of Texas and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. AirLev started her journey at Elon Musk’s Hyperloop Pod Competition. The system is autonomous, emits zero carbon, travels at high speeds, and optimizes operational efficiency in moving goods and people. But what Deborah is most excited about is our technology’s potential to reshape how societies live, work and connect. She’s passionate about connecting the world and also a big dreamer, who overcame long odds to get to where she is today. Deborah recently spoke at TEDx and SXSW on the future of transportation and her journey toward making air-levitation Hyperloop travel a reality.
