The Atlas Foundation represents considerable capital interest. There are several companies which exist under the Atlas umbrella. The Foundation appears to fund these organizations in order to further their goals which are currently unknown.

"The Atlas Foundation is dedicated to finding answers to the most fundamental questions of our existence. Led by CEO Elizabeth Leighton, our family of businesses is at the cutting edge of innovation across the fields of physics, telecommunications, hypercomputing, and more, enabling us to conduct a wide range of intensive research programs. Right now we're conducting research in the fields of artificial and distributed intelligence, simulated worlds, and metaphysical analysis."
Emailing these addresses did not bounce:
"Echo utilizes a custom cloud computing solution to bring the voices and personalities of those you cared about back to life. Our patented audio recognition and mental reconstruction system pairs with a powerful Markov chain-inspired personality drive to create a perfect simulation."
"Multiverse is dedicated to learning more about how we can influence the natural world through discrete modification and manipulation of low-level universal forces. Starting with a simple question about how particle activity in a vacuum can be measured, we have made 100 years of progress in only a couple of decades. the breadth of our studies have taught the scientific community more about the practical application of matter interaction than ever before!"
Multiverse Technologies appears to be a think tank of sorts. They claim to be carrying out research in the following fields:
"The computational theory of mind holds that the mind is a computation that arises from the brain acting as a computing machine." Echo CTO Mikhail Regison has, apparently, found some utility in this field of study, remarking that "[his] company is already applying some of [Multiverse's] discoveries in functional computationalism within [their] own products!" It should be noted that while efforts have been made to unify them, the term "functional computationalism" is troublesome as Functionalism is a competing theory with Computationalism.
"Our massive network runs off of hundreds of satellites across the globe. With a simple purchase and some package customization: You too can be free of the clutches of big government snooping on your data!"
"We are a small and dedicated group of friends and colleagues from Harvard’s Theoretical Physics Post-grad program. After years of collaborative research and plenty of success in small endeavors, Superlumina was formed. This venture is a way for us to continue our studies into how the fundamental laws of the universe can be strategically used and modified to humanity’s advantage."
"Our current studies are primarily focused on creating new and more effective methods of communication through advancements in the field of particle physics. All successful projects are constantly iterated upon, tested continuously in our labs, and are used in collaboration with our investor to improve existing radio infrastructure around the world. We always look for new ways to learn from what we have already accomplished, in order to make our next steps even greater."
"This incredible invention, while still in progress, has astounding implications for our understanding of the very underpinnings of how the universe works! By firing high-energy tachyons from an apparatus and accelerating them to faster-than-light speeds with a dedicated particle accelerator, we can send data to any time before the emitter was created! It is our hope that initial testing of this device will commence later this summer, after our dedicated facility is constructed. If this project is completed: We could change our future, and our past!"
High-Powered Signal Generator
"Our custom High-Powered Signal Generator is designed from the ground up to broadcast high-density data through radio waves while using less energy than competing technologies, allowing fast and effective communication with man-made probes and other space faring machines. It is currently housed in our labs, located in rural upstate New York."
Interstellar Listening Post
"The Interstellar Listening Post constantly scans the night sky for incoming signals of human origin, or otherwise. This array of radar dishes, radio receiver antennae, and other sensors is equipped to find and hone in on data coming to our planet from elsewhere, wherever that may be beyond our sky. Having taken 3 years to build, the unit sits comfortably in geostationary orbit around Earth, reporting back to our labs every hour with any information that it has detected."
Mass-Density Data Transmissions
"With the creation of new and unique ways to send and receive information, we needed a way to handle the data that those devices produced. We are in the process of developing a corruption-resistant method of transmitting audio, video, and other common file types. The goal of this project is to find a way to practically guarantee that details are not entirely lost when converting media from one format to another, especially when that process involves firing high-energy particles at an aerial radar dish."
"Our compact particle accelerator is currently being built on private land that we were able to purchase near our labs. Expected to be only 3 square miles when completed and built to rival the effectiveness of CERN’s Superconducting Super Collider and the recently defunct Cornell Synchrotron, this miniaturized design is capable of testing particle collisions more efficiently than any other facility to date. With a generous grant given to us by our donator to develop build the accelerator and its housing control center in record time, the Superlumina Super Collider (SSC) should be ready for use starting by the 3rd quarter of 2017."
