The world of business has many giants and experts who not only dominate their respective fields but their arsenal of products and services are unparalleled and uniquely contributing to the world in their ways. These leaders and CEOs not only offer great ideas and vision through their companies but also showcase the true qualities of a leader, a visionary, and most important of all, a disciplined and virtuous personality which is looked upon with utmost respect and a role model for millions of ambitious entrepreneurs and industry giants alike.

They found angel investors in due course and turned it into a successful company, later selling to computer make Compaq in 1999 for a whopping $307 million (now $280 million). Elon ventured ahead and founded an online financial services company, X.com, which he later merged with Confinity founded by Peter Thiel, bringing the merger to be named PayPal.
eBay, the online auction service bought PayPal in 2002 for $1.5 billion of equity shares making Elon holding &165 million worth of eBay shares. Elon did not stop here and pooled in almost all his early fortune and founded many companies, two of which are Tesla Motors and SpaceX. These companies not only provide a vision to the future and their products are equally breathtaking, making them one of the most popular and famed companies in the world with fans and enthusiasts all over the world. Tesla Motors provides all-electric vehicles with unmatched features in almost all aspects a daily driver should be without taking a toll on drive experience and comfort. SpaceX is a leap into the future which aims to set up a colony for humans on Mars as Elon feels that that mankind has to get out of Earth as dependency on a single planet is a potential threat to our survival.
