About Elon Musk

Elon Musk's net worth is approximately $20 billion in June 2019. South African born now one of America's most influential men in business circles Elon Musk is a gentleman who since his childhood days has lived to inspire many to outperform their potential and to rise to global significance by grabbing opportunities and converting them to the benefit of humanity.

He is an engineer by profession, a philosopher and an aggressive entrepreneur whose zeal and determination to make the world a better place has stunned many. He is the brains behind PayPal - one of the world's most trusted online global payment platforms and currently the CEO (and CTO) of SpaceX and Product architect of Tesla Motors.

Musk was born to a South African father and a Canadian mother who, exposed him to the world of computers and technology at a very tender age. In fact, he is said to have launched his first commercial software at just 12 years of age - a game called Blastar.

A physics graduate from the University of Pennsylvania, Elon rose from a somewhat humble background to start rubbing shoulders with the big names in the world of politics, technology and finance a few years after graduating in 1995.

People who have work with him describe him as a workaholic. He apparently spends most of his time researching and inventing new concepts for Tesla Motors where he reportedly has a 32% stake. One of his hallmark concepts is the SolarCity concept which aims to encourage the use of solar power as a primary source of power to replace petrol (in vehicles).

Musk is a dynamic man; his accommodative nature makes him not just a good boss (to people who work under him) but also a reliable partner to other inventors and entrepreneurs across the globe.
