Thank you for your interest in our project, we are very grateful to share this project with the world. My name is Kyle Hubert, and I am Vice President at MINILOOP International in North America, International Partner at R A+D, and ecopeneur. I have a background in health and wellness, as well as innovative, green-architecture and design with emphasis on wellbeing of the inhabitants. I have been focusing the last 5 years of my life on self-healing and the study of regenerative medicines for my own personal healing after a sport injury from collegiate football. During this time I have been continuing my study in design with the accumulation of knowledge and experience traveling the world, observing the dynamics and building styles of cities and cultures, ancient and present. My most recent travels being focused in Southeast Asia and Central America.
My passion that drives my career and role in MINILOOP is to help bring the most innovative, sustainable building and design techniques into the public arena. And to have it inspired and guided by the people of the community. I am a huge advocate of 3D Printing Construction techniques and will be exploring potentially utilizing those techniques for the MINILOOP North America and other projects with R A+D and Smart Dimensions.
Campaign co-owner and MINILOOP President, Prof. Richard Moreta Castillo, has worn and currently wears many hats in his career path and passions. Richard has been an architect specializing in sustainable developments, exotic eco-design for many years, and was selected at ARCH 20 as one of the 7 most influential architects in the world. He has taught and presented at universities all over the world, and is currently the owner a few architecture firms around the world, two of which being Richard’s Architecture + Design (R A+D) and Smart Dimensions. These two firms are the teams responsible for bringing the ECO-BAHN MINILOOP to life through collaboration between teams all over the world. He is also currently working with me on two books to be published with this year on the topic of megatrends in human societal development, and includes solutions that will allow cities to blossom with highly functional, eco-friendly infrastructure for humans and the world to thrive. MINILOOP is one of those infrastructure upgrades we feel is not an option, but a must for urban transit.
ECO-BAHN MINILOOP is the newest project in the pipeline for development, which brings great innovation, sustainability, and renewable energy to our cities worldwide. Having contributors through this crowdfunding campaign will allow for the spearheading of MINILOOP’s developments in North America, our first focal points being Silicon Valley, as well as Denver, Colorado. Those who choose to contribute to MINILOOP’s North American startup are contributing to more than just MINILOOP itself, but the communities that MINILOOP will support in the future. The abundance received through community funding and support, facilitating this project's fulfillment, and has long term positive influence in the communities this platform and the cause behind it.
MINILOOP International is already working on the completion of the project approval for the first MINILOOP platform in the world. The city of Skolkovo, the Russian 'Silicon Valley' outside of Moscow, is projected to be the first MINILOOP location in the world. The project is already in the final approval process by the Mayor and City, and we look forward to being an amazing step forward for bringing this platform to the world. All political opinions aside regarding Russian-US relations, we at MINILOOP are here to create innovations for the betterment of humanity as a unified whole, beyond borders, beyond media, etc. We as a team come from all over the planet, including the United States, Dominican Republic, and Bangladesh, and we find that it is a wonderful strength and advantage in our industry to have global collaboration.
At MINILOOP, along with R A+D and Smart Dimensions, the creation of innovative and sustainable developments for the public and the future of our cities is one of our greatest desires and fulfillments. We do this with the intention of catalyzing positive shifts and transforming our cities and communities which are long overdue for upgrades in infrastructure and technology. The MINILOOP transportation systems are built for the people, and are setting a new precedent on cost-effective construction materials, and innovative modular building techniques.
Each location is custom tailored to meet its city’s needs, as you can see in the picture below, the body style choice of each MINILOOP location has multiple options. It brings more than just easy and ecological commuting, but also brings safety and peace of mind to our mobile and diverse communities. Too often do we hear of children and adults in bicycle-automobile incidents. As partners and parents ourselves, our hearts go out to those families and communities around the world wounded by these kinds of tragedies. We feel that by implementing MINILOOP we can greatly reduce these incidents from happening.
When we created the MINILOOP system, we sought to change the way we perceive travel and commuting. Providing these means of safe, around the clock travel gives more incentive for bicycle and e-bike travel, in turn taking more cars off the road and minimizing traffic and pollution. Because the cyclists are in their own interdependent routes they can maintain steady high speeds with passing, cruising, and exit/entrance lanes. Convention vehicle traffic can have its own pace, creating even better traffic flow without bicyclists moving along the street level.
MINILOOP systems also provide an opportunity to meet the growing demand for EV charging stations. With more people turning to electric vehicles, MINILOOP can be the infrastructural backbone for more commuting freedom and range. By partnering with EV, e-bike, and e-scooter manufacturers, we hope to bring the range and mobility of electric vehicle travel to life in our urban communities.
MINILOOP's features allow accessibility and travel by bicycle much easier and more efficient. Cyclists can utilize the MINILOOP circuits for long distance rides, as well as to get them to parts of the city where they can utilize pre-existing cycling routes such as canyons and mountain biking. With this platform, different districts and sectors of cities can be interconnected and easily traversed like never before on an individual commuter level.
In addition to the transportation and renewable energies, MINILOOP also offers for many opportunities for the beautification of the city. With things like vertical gardens, flowers, and space for artwork each community has the opportunity to further their expression and creativity. MINILOOP also comes with Digital Media Walls along its side as an option, for corporate sponsors.
Funding coming from contributors will go to a number of key goals listed below, and to the completing of milestones in MINILOOP’s development. Our first campaign we are setting a goal of raising $400,000 USD for the spearheading of MINILOOP North America. If by chance we are unable to meet the $400,000 USD goal, we will be utilizing each penny towards moving our project forward, as well as preparing more campaigns for the project. We are also seeking to partner with private organizations and companies in the construction, bicycle/e-bike/e-scooter, media and advertisement, and electric automobile manufacturers such as Tesla or Toyota. The Digital Marketing using MINILOOP is one of the ways MINILOOP also creates ongoing income, and premium advertisement space from everything to companies and ads, to digital art and design.
Funding contributes to:
- StartUp costs of MINILOOP North America.
- Building and funding of operations of MINILOOP North America Team
- Marketing, branding, and merchandise development for MINILOOP
- Creation of university, cycling community, and other community events and programs
- Developments in the 3D printing construction industry to further minimize cost of construction for MINILOOP
- Building of photo-realistic, 3D renderings and video tours for presentations to investors
- Project construction and development
Contributors to the MINILOOP North America projects will be directly impacting more than just MINILOOP’s Team Members, but their act of compassion and donation will support the generations to come. The community aspect of MINILOOP is a key focus for us, as we are reaching out to local communities for assistance in support of how MINILOOP would best serve their communities. Everything from the location, route, interconnected locations, and design are each adjustable to each city in which MINILOOP is destined to be a part of.
Year-round, zero-emission transportation and renewable energy technologies are key to the future of our urban ecosystems becoming healthier and livable. MINILOOP can also shelter users from the elements, as the model of tubing can be suitable for extreme weather conditions, and open air platforms for temperate climates. It also helps open up the opportunities for communities to build healthy habits and culture around active, healthy lifestyles.
Some challenges to the MINILOOP project are likely to surface, especially as we present these projects to various City Councils and Mayors around North America. We hope to meet these challenges with undeniable community support, and excellent relationships with the cities and their local governments. IF a city should deny the build, we will pick another.
Other investment opportunities for MINILOOP also include working hand and hand with electric bicycle, bicycle, and other electric transportation manufacturing companies to help fund the development. Also, we will be working towards making contact with companies such as Toyota and Tesla, which can utilize the EV Charging stations at MINILOOP Terminals to help advertise for their already large fleet of hybrid or EV vehicles on the market.
