The rumors of our death have been greatly exaggerated.As you've
probably heard, Michael Laine lost his building last month, and with it went
most of our funding. The majority of our day-to-day operations were funded
directly from Michael's personal finances - the majority of which came from his
commercial real estate. We're not done yet, however.
LiftPort Group has
had to undergo some serious scrutiny and we've had to focus on a much narrower
list of objectives in the near future. Almost all our focus, lately, is taking
what we have already developed and making it into a commercial product, namely
Tethered Towers will be
performing a public demonstration of our technology in June. If you think you
might have an idea on how to utilize this product, we would like to encourage
you to attend. We will be demonstrating our current capability and detailing our
future capabilities. If you have a R&D department that could make use of
this product, be sure to attend as well.
Keep your eyes peeledWe've been doing some interesting business
planning and will be announcing it soon. Check our web site often for some

Deadline...Michael Laine, President of LiftPort Group, has set a hard
date by which we must turn this company profitable. We must produce 25k/month in
revenue by September 1st or we will be dissolving the corporation. It's
possible. We have tons of books
and other retail items yet to be
sold, we have the Tethered Towers balloon
product, we have great speakers, we even have a non-working nanotube furnace on
the other side of the country that needs a lift. Some of these could produce
that revenue on their own; several of them together should be able to do
Change the world!We need more employees that can write their own
paycheck. If you can help this company stay in business, do it. If you can
sponsor, find sponsors, commercialize something we've done or can do, can find
grants, can issue grants... The space elevator will be our generation's greatest
accomplishment. Be a part of it.
We know all this sounds dire. It's not.
We can and will succeed.
