Elon Musk

Elon Musk before the fame. Musk, right from childhood was brilliant and at an early age, he created his first video game. His first boom started when he received $500 for the source code of BASIC-based games to be published in South African Magazine PC and office technology. Elon Musk determination and focus led to his success.

The year 1995 seem’s to be the year  he ventured into entrepreneurship, he was 24 years of age. He moved over to California to start his Ph.D. in applied physics and materials science at Stanford University,  but the plan changed. His enthusiasm for entrepreneurship in the areas of the internet, renewable energy, and outer space, made him to quit his Ph.D. after two days.

In 2002, Musk became a citizen of U.S.

One of my favorite quote by Elon Musk, which states “If Something is Important Enough You Should Try it, Even If the Probable Outcome is Failure” He is a type who acknowledges the process of trials and errors in the field of entrepreneurship.


Elon Musk moved from one company to the other. His first Startup company was Zip2, a company that provided directories and maps to online Newspapers. He teamed up with his brother Kimbal and co-founded Zip2. They invested $28,000 into the company from their father’s bank account.

Four years later, he became a millionaire after he and his brother sold out Zip2 to Compaq, an early P.C. company in 1999. Compaq which was later acquired by HP in 2002 and it amounted to $307 million, Musk took a share of $22 million.

Elon Musk has really made so much inventions. He is a problem solver, he seeks to solve a problem confronting people in the best possible way. He moved on to Telsa, a motor company which runs on electric. In 2004, Musk provided much of the initial capital support to run it (Telsa). The idea behind the company was to create effective electric cars and sell them to the masses.

Forbes valued Telsa at more than $51.1 Billion as of the time of writing.

Forbes estimated Elon Musk net worth to be $19.4B in August 2018.

Forbes valued SpaceX at more than $20bn in July.

He wasn’t the one to found Tesla as well but he did help create most of it.
