Sustainable Housing Vision Powers Community-First Fundraising Campaign
March 23, 2023 – Nevada City, CA – Geoship, the leader in next-generation affordable homes, announced that it has built an engineering prototype structure on its design and manufacturing testing ground here.
The company is continuing towards its ‘Earthshot’ mission: To make the best home on earth the most affordable one while scaling manufacturing to one million homes per year (faster than Tesla Motors.) The recently revealed world’s first fully bioceramic geodesic home comes as they have launched a community-first funding round on Republic.com. The round is open for a limited time. Since its launch in 2019, Geoship has received over 10,000 dome preorders, including over 500 with paid deposits. The company currently has over 2,000 investors. Prospective partners are invited to learn more at: www.republic.com/geoship.
Geoship’s ‘first principles’ approach to home manufacturing combines the most efficient geometry, materials, and manufacturing methods. The world’s strongest known structure, the geodesic dome, is combined with a breakthrough in chemically bonded ceramic materials developed at US National Labs. The unique, eco-friendly combination uses naturally found materials. It enables homes that cost half as much as traditional structures, have a 90% smaller carbon footprint, and are designed to last up to 500 years.
Using injection molding, a popular manufacturing modality never before used in home building, Ceramic domes can be rapidly manufactured and assembled on-site, maximize material efficiency, and are ultra energy efficient and resistant to earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, and fires.
While the domes can be built as individual units or clusters, Geoship sees villages of the future materializing from the digital space. Geoship domes will be conceived in virtual reality by networked communities, then built with a shared vision for common areas, permaculture, and community self-sufficiency. The domes even benefit from known health benefits related to natural light, curved shapes, and healthy natural materials.
Geoship founder and CEO Morgan Bierschenk stated, “Millions of homebuyers want to leave the city and live closer to nature and community – in affordable, sustainable, ultra-modern, natural homes. Ceramic domes and regenerative villages uniquely serve this emerging market. Our Nevada City prototype dome has attracted interest from architects, artists, engineers, developers, and dome lovers from over 60 countries. Thanks to platforms like Republic, the right to invest in world-changing private tech companies is no longer limited to accredited investors. Through our community-first funding campaign, we’re inviting purpose-aligned individuals worldwide to join our Earthshot. Investment in this round is open to everybody; we encourage prospective customers and investors to join our exciting mission and build the regenerative future of home!”
