Every month, a new entrepreneur, a new inspiration
As we celebrate kicking off this new series – Entrepreneur of the Month in the Global Entrepreneurship Week, so this first post is dedicated to Elon Musk. As most of you know he is the CEO of Tesla, founder of X.com (which later evolved into PayPal) and the space transport venture, Space Exploration Technologies or SpaceX for short. What you don’t know is that he is involved in some pretty interesting stuff.
In The News!
First of all, if you think you had a busy month just look at what Elon Musk has been upto. Only he can take a bet of installing 100 to 300 Mwatts hours batteries in Southern Australia within 100 days. Tesla is now on overdrive trying to deliver on that promise. If that’s not enough, how about a clash between two tech titans, the other being Mark Zuckerberg, over Artificial Intelligence. Elon Musk once again got involved in the AI debate when he called on UN to ban lethal autonomous weapons along with several other leaders in the field of AI. Recently Musk unveiled plans that SpaceX is building a rocket called BFR that could help you travel anywhere in the world in under 30 minutes and anywhere else under an hour, all for the cost of an economy seat on a current airline. The days when you booked a plane are going to be over if Musk achieves this goal. BFR, by the way, is short for Big F–king Rocket.
Know thy Entrepreneur
Elon Musk started his first company Zip2, a web software company that developed an Internet “city guide”. He moved on from there to pursue entrepreneurial aspirations in the areas of the Internet, renewable energy and outer space. Musk hasn’t stopped there, he envisioned Hyperloop, a high speed transportation system, co-founded Neuralink and created OpenAI for development in the field of AI.
He has even started working on traffic problems that plague our cities, by building a tunnel boring machine with the help of which an extensive network of underground tunnels will be created. Thus came the name of his latest venture – The Boring Company. Closely follow Musk to know what he is upto now.
