A MIND BEHIND TECHNOLOGICAL GREATNESS
It is true that most times, the names that do all the work do not really come out to our front line pages, and the brains behind each invention or creation matters importantly and they need to be credited. Here, in this post, is an example of a significant tech guy who you probably have not heard of. As you enjoy the reading, take note of the lessons. Ellon Musk is the founder, CEO, and CTO of Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX; a co-founder, a Series A investor, CEO, and product architect of Tesla Inc.; co-chairman of OpenAI; founder and CEO of Neuralink. He was previously the co-founder and chairman of SolarCity; co-founder of Zip2; and founder of X.com, which merged with Confinity and took the name PayPal. As of July 2017, he has an estimated net worth of $16.1 billion, making him the 80th-wealthiest person in the world. In December 2016, Musk was ranked 21st on the Forbes list of The World’s Most Powerful People.
Before Musk became a billionaire, all he had was his brain and the vision to change the world and humanity. His ideas, which were called dreams by many, have turned into reality today. Most entrepreneurs these days could be called serial entrepreneurs, this is because, they come up with new ideas and start new businesses. For the case of Ellon Musk, he could be termed a “parallel entrepreneur and this because he has implemented his ideas in parallel, in more than one industry. He has impacted greatly, every business he has ventured in:
Electric cars (Tesla), Rocket Technology (SpaceX), E-money (PayPal), Energy Services (Solar City).
Musk has stated that the goals of SolarCity, Tesla, and SpaceX revolve around his vision to change the world and humanity, getting most of his ideas as a result of the need to solve a problem, his goals include reducing global warming through sustainable energy production and consumption, and reducing the “risk of human extinction” by “making life multi-planetary” by establishing a human colony on Mars, believing so hard on his dream to colonize Mars, he once said, “If I die I will be buried on Mars”. In addition to his primary business pursuits, he has also envisioned a high-speed transportation system known as the Hyperloop, and has proposed a VTOL supersonic jet aircraft with electric fan propulsion, known as the Musk electric jet.
Musk also proposed the concept of The Boring Company in 2017, a new idea that is taking the world higher in technological advancement. According to Musk,the goal is to enhance tunneling speed enough such that establishing an underground tunnel network is financially feasible. … In March 2017, Musk announced that sometime in April the company will start using a tunnel boring machine (TBM) to begin digging a usable tunnel at SpaceX.
MUSK, has not also failed in the act of philanthropy, Musk is believed to be a very generous giver to humanitarian centers and investment in science projects and discoveries, to aid global technological development.
