Zap Energy is building a low-cost, compact, and scalable fusion energy platform that conﬁnes and compresses plasma without the need for expensive and complex magnetic coils. Zap’s sheared-flow-stabilized Z-pinch technology provides compelling fusion economics and requires orders of magnitude less capital than conventional approaches. Zap Energy has over one hundred team members in two facilities near Seattle and is backed by leading ﬁnancial and strategic investors.
As a high-growth company in the emerging fusion energy industry, we are in the early stages of building a technology that could change history. But no one says fusion will be easy and helping people understand our work, support our mission, and build the foundation for a new industry will require clear communication, smart messaging, and a strong brand.
