The visionary entrepreneur Elon Musk who is famous for running SpaceX and Tesla Inc., said the success he got in America is quite huge, and no other country would have helped to achieve it. Musk, who was quite interested in science, started Spacex in 2002, and year after that, Tesla. SpaceX is soon going to be launching its historic launch on Wednesday, along with NASA. He is the visionary entrepreneur who thinks humans will have to reach space and find other ways of surviving. He is planning to build a Mars colony where humans can live healthy lives but on Mars. While talking about upcoming events, Elon Musk remembered the first time he came to the USA in 1992.
He listened to America as a land of Opportunity at that time, which worked well for him. Musk was born in South Africa but had a massive interest in living in the United States. He mentioned the new things, especially technology happening in this country, attracted him the most. Musk said he arrived in the United States with only $2000, a suitcase filled with tons of books. He later started his first company Zip2 with the budget of $2500; at that time, he had just a computer and a car. He then got $300 million in 1999 when Musk and his partner decided to sell Zip2.
After receiving so much money, he decided to build X.com, an online financial service that was later sold for $1.5 billion on eBay. All of these successes made him start SpaceX, Tesla, and invest in other companies as well. He credits his success to the land of Opportunity because without it, he wouldn’t have so much luxurious life. Some critics think Musk had a privileged experience before he arrived in the USA, but Musk completely disagrees with such statements.
