Startup Sunday Season 3 Episode 9 (ELON MUSK- The visionary with an impeccable spirit)

The Human Mind has always baffled many scholars, researchers, scientists and philosophers for its sheer ability to think and perceive the unimaginable. Sir Albert Einstein once famously quoted, that “Logic will take you from A to B. But Imagination can take you everywhere”. To what extent this quote is valid can be judged by the way that humans have evolved only through innovation over the centuries. From lighting fire to producing nuclear energy and from making wheels to sending the man on the moon, we have practically achieved a lot as a species. Human race over the generations has been blessed by such thinkers, philosophers, and innovators who have challenged and disrupted their time and have come up with discoveries and innovations that none could imagine then. Even today we have visionaries, who with their imaginative minds cross all the boundaries that bind a normal person, to create a better world for those living therein.

When we talk about visionaries, one such person who has changed the way multiple industries work is Elon Reeve Musk. Born in Pretoria, South Africa, Musk’s journey in becoming a visionary and an entrepreneur started at the age of 12 when he created Blaster, a BASIC-based video game, and later sold it to a Magazine known as PC and Office Technology, for approximately $500. Later being inspired by The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, Musk believed that the Internet, Renewable Energy and Space Travel would be having the biggest impact on the lives of the people worldwide. This week’s Startup Sunday would thus feature the journey that Elon Musk took as an individual to establish three very different ventures and how he built those enterprises from scratch with a never say die attitude. Such an undying spirit was the result of his conviction to his own ideas.
