If you’ve never heard of Elon Musk, here we present him. He ranks number # 15 on the Forbes billionaires list, but what is really impressive is not his fortune; after all, there are many people much richer than him, rather, what’s impressive is his career, his projects and his vision. In general, he’s a true example of how a millionaire should be nowadays.

Elon Musk is mostly known for being the creator of PayPal, for which he is placed in the list of millionaires. Paypal is the biggest online payment system in the world; however, Elon didn’t dedicate all of himself just to the world of online cashing and payment on the Internet. The ability to diversify of this man is his most notable feature.

In 2002, PayPal was acquired by eBay for a total of 1.5 thousand millions of dollars, and Elon quickly passed to other completely different business. In the same year, 2002, Elon Musk founded SpaceX, the first privet company that would be devoted to space exploration and that after a time, would be the one responsible for carrying provisions and personal to the special international station, with a billionaire contract with NASA, but Musk did not stop there.

Musk also is responsible for the creation of:

Tesla motors: a company that is dedicated to the manufacture of high-end, fully electric cars, of which Musk is responsible for the design of several models.

SolarCity: currently the second largest solar energy provider company of the United States, founded in part by Musk as his personal fight against pollution and climate change.

Hiperloop: is a project created by Musk, which seeks a way of transporting things in vacuum tubes through large distances, from city in city. Musk devoted several human resources from Tesla and spaceX, mostly engineers, to carry out the concept and the Alpha phase of the investigation. He also announced a contest for students to seek a solution for the problem.

Open AI: this is your last known project. By 2015, he announced the creation of a company without profit, which would be devoted to the research of artificial intelligence.

As you can see, in a nutshell, Musk represents a different type of billionaire, which is a supreme entrepreneur, worried about the world and its progress; a visionary. People like Musk are the ones building the future right now, a future in which someday, maybe not us, but our children and grandchildren may live.
