“Starting a company is like eating glass and staring into the abyss, if you are ready for that then start a company”
Know about Elon Musk:
Elon Musk started Zip2 with money from his father before he found PayPal. PayPal was eventually acquired by  PayPal was acquired by eBay for US$1.5 billion in stock, of which US$165 million was given to Musk. Elon Musk used the proceeds from the sale of PayPal and started Tesla, Space X, and Solar City.
There is probably no other Billionaire whose vision and mission is about securing the future of humanity.
Elon Musk after selling his previous company PayPal for 300 million dollars invested all of it into three companies which aim to save humanity. His ultimate goals include reducing global warming through sustainable energy production and consumption; as well as reducing the chance of human extinction by setting up a human colony on Mars. The three companies he invested post selling PayPal was Tesla, Space X & Solar-city. Preceding the success of these companies were breaking point situations which were turned around.

 “We are running the most dangerous experiment in history, to see how much carbon dioxide the atmosphere can handle before there is an environmental catastrophe”
Tesla Motors
Through Tesla motors, Elon Musk envisions the world where electric cars could be made affordable to the average customer. Through this, he intends to reduce the carbon footprint of the human race and save the world from the catastrophic effects of Global warming. Tesla Motors designs, manufactures, and sells luxury electric carselectric vehicle powertrain components, and battery products. Tesla was on the verge of bankruptcy during the time of Global Financial crisis until Musk himself pulled the act together and made its first profits in 2013 before listing it on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

“If something is important enough, you should try, even if the probable outcome is failure”

Space X 
American aerospace manufacturer and space transport services company started with the goal of creating the technologies to reduce space transportation costs and enable the colonization of Mars. Space X had to endure multiple failures’s during launches before its first success. Today Space X launches satellite’s of NASA and other government entities into space. Space X becomes the first private player in the history of mankind to launch satellite’s into space.
Global Warming has taken the world closer to a point of no return, the Doomsday clock has predicted that the world is ever closer to a major catastrophe or destruction. Odds are against humanity in its quest for a sustained survival, Elon Musk seeks to increase that odds for survival single-handedly.
