Michel Laberge gave a presentation at the Schulich Leader Scholarships event and the talk is available on Youtube. Most of the video is actually introduction and questions at the end. Laberge mentions in his very popular and general presentation that they are still working on raising the funding for their prototype machine. He describes how hard work it is to talk to investors and to actually get some funding.

I hope that they will soon get the funding they need so they can go ahead and build the prototype.

I believe they still need another 100 million to actually build the demo reactor.

$100 million will no doubt get the long lead equipment ordered, engineering started, site acquired. Financing for the whole project to completion is not the way that such projects are done.

At this stage of the fusion project, investors are confident of success. Demo is just that, demonstration of the science.
Near term, cheap, dark horse fusion hits the air waves, GF - TED, LM - Announcement. The race is on.

Burnaby, B.C.-based General Fusion says it has closed on a $65 million equity financing round that will spark the launch of a program to design, construct and operate a demonstration nuclear fusion power plant.
