"However if you can form a company to design such a reactor (or help fund one if any exist), then get a test reactor built (because getting someone to buy one "off the plan" is going to be pretty difficult) then you're home and dry."

Discounting the test system that WAS built 50 years ago (Oak Ridge Experiment) and killed before it went into the breeding test phase.

Fortunately, "someone" is working on a new test reactor (actually a pair) - the chinese government.
