A 2011 episode of Bloomberg’s Risk Takers which profiles serial tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of SpaceX, co-founder and CEO of Tesla Motors, and co-founder of Paypal. Musk is still only in his mid-forties and is already worth approximately $13bn.
Musk created the first fully viable electric car, owns the largest solar energy company in the United States, and may win the race to become the first person to make commercial space tourism a reality. Bloomberg looks at his life story of this bonafide genius and explores some of his beliefs and working methods. Musk is arguably one of the most important people in the world and for its future, nobody has been more effective in driving innovation in key areas which will be imperative for the sustainability of the planet, its resources, and ultimately the human race.
