Seems like they got some funding and are moving ahead with their prototype. They hope to reach break even in 2024 (I guess that depends on funding).
Edit: This article has some more information on the company and their approach. It is still not entirely clear to me what they are trying to do.
From what I understand they will need to increase driver velocity by a factor of 10 (100 km/s) for break even and 50 (500 km/s) for a powerplant. That seems ambitious.
