Elon Musk (South Africa, 1971) is the entrepreneur behind Paypal and Tesla. He also owns his own space travel company and is working on the Hyperloop, a high-speed transportation system that transports people through a kind of vacuum tubes to their destination. He is worth an estimated 13.5 billion dollars. He has been dubbed ‘The new Steve Jobs’. Apparently, like Jobs, he’s a tough taskmaster. Musk himself prefers to think of himself in the same light as men like Thomas Edison and Henry Ford.
