Elon Musk

Revolutionizing three industries. Automotive, aerospace, and solar energy. Is active CEO and CTO of the largest private space company in the world, AND CEO of the most up and coming electric car-tech company in the world.

Who is this incredible real-life Tony Stark? You already know.

Elon Musk began his journey with Paypal, the world’s most well-known payment processing system. A small side project became a 1.5 billion dollar payoff that he later invested into his brainchild, Space X, and then later Tesla. The technical side of Musk’s projects is incredible, yet what remains to be this man’s ultimate genius is his lack of limit to his imagination and his goals.

Let’s start with Space X. This company was started to put civilization on Mars. Yes, Elon Musk wants to civilize Mars. Many don’t know that the goal of his company is such, mostly because Space X since its inception has become the biggest private space company in the world. So yes, getting billions of dollars of private and government contracts is all just for the interim until the company’s technology becomes sufficient to support life on another planet. He wants to revolutionize our Earth by

Next, Tesla. From the depths of bankruptcy, Musk pulled it out with his own funding. It is now the most revolutionary automaker that has entered the market in the past 10 decades. Demand for Teslas has never been an issue. Demand will never be an issue. Exclusivity brings with it a perception of even higher value. The fact that Tesla is struggling to meet demand makes people want one even more. Musk views electric cars as the future of the world. And we will get there one Tesla at a time.

A third brainchild of Musk’s genius is the solar provider SolarCity. The nation’s largest solar panel provider. Musk simply handed his cousins a few million dollars and asked them to create a sustainable and affordable solar panel company. And sustainable and affordable it is. Its recent acquisition by Tesla is also testament to Musk’s scope and long term vision. He’s got plans. That’s no mystery anymore.

Every single one of his companies is out to revolutionize the world. The auto industry, space, and energy capture and storage. Companies are difficult to start and sustain. Check out this moving company, it’s the definition of success.

Thanks for joining us for another featured person of our time!

Jeff Bezos

Another business magnate. Have you heard of Amazon? Of course you have. It’s the largest online retailer in the world. Being Founder AND Ceo of this multi-billion dollar company has given Jeff the 4th spot in the world’s richest, at a $59.8 billion dollar net worth.

As a child, the young Jeff spent his summers working his grandfather’s farm in Texas. This is where his unbreakable work ethic took root. As he grew older, he began to illustrate a passion for technology.

Bezos’s revolutionary career did not begin with online retail. In 2000, his mind gave birth to Blue Origin. The company’s mission was to make commercial spaceflight viable. It continues to work towards that goal today.

With a company worth over $250 billion, he better have some crazy vision and good intuition about how to do business. And wow, does he. Bezos was one of the first investors in Google (he invested a quarter-million dollars in 1998).

Not only is Jeffrey’s business presence one of the best and biggest in the world, but so are his philanthropic efforts. Although seemingly insignificant when compared to the $28 billion dollar donation (1/2 net worth) from Bill Gates to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Bezos gives back in his own ways. He hasn’t yet signed The Giving Pledge, but has funded projects such as:

  • Bezos Center for Innovation
  • Recovery of the Apollo 11 mission’s rocket engines
  • Bezos Center for Neural Circuit Dynamics
  • Bezos Family FOundation
  • Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Well that’s all for today, folks! Come back tomorrow for more world gamechangers and insight on the amazing world around us.

Larry Ellison

Founder of Oracle. Net worth: $50.3 billion. College drop out. #7 richest man in the world.

Larry Ellison, born in 1966, is an American entrepreneur who currently serves as executive chairman and CTO of Oracle Corp. He is currently 71 years old, and lives in Woodside, CA.

Ellison dropped out of college twice, from both the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois. He moved to California in between his two attempts at University. Ironic that later in his life (2006), he’d become the richest man in California.

 

Check out the documentary below:

Ellison is one of 128 billionaires to have signed “The Giving Pledge” that commits the members of the group to donating at least 1/2 of their net worth to philanthropy.
