Elon Musk Companies

1. SpaceX

Elon Musk was involved with the nonprofit Mars Society in 2001. He took responsibility for funding the project himself. He asked many companies to provide him a rocket. But the group returned emoty-handed to United States. In February 2002, he met Kosmotras and it offered a rocket worth $8 Million but Musk rejected. In May 2002, with $100 Million of his early fortune, Musk founded Space Exploration Technologies Corporation named as SpaceX. As of 2021, He remains the Company’s CEO and chief Engineer. 

Falcon1 was the first private liquid-fuel rocket launched by SpaceX in 2008 to reach Earth Orbit. It was succeeded after its three failed launches. SpaceX is an American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company headquarter in the Hawthrone, California. SpaceX is developing a Satellite megaconstellation named starlink to provide commercial internet service.

2. Tesla

Tesla, perhaps Musk’s most well-known company, is a game-changing electric vehicle manufacturer that is credited with popularizing the concept of battery-electric vehicles. Musk founded the company in July 2003, and by 2005, the business had unveiled the Roadster, an electric vehicle that went into production in 2008. The firm already offers a wide selection of electric vehicles, including an SUV, sports car, and sedan, and will soon add an electric semi-truck and pickup truck to its lineup.

Tesla has grown beyond its main automobile industry into clean energy generation and storage since its inception. SolarCity, another Musk-founded firm that sold solar power systems, was acquired by the business in 2016. SolarCity, now a Tesla subsidiary, offers its own solar panels and manufactures panels in the style of roof tiles for a more aesthetically pleasing and efficient solution. Tesla makes battery systems allowing consumers to store their energy in addition to solar panels.

3. Honorable mention: X.com (now PayPal)

Elon Musk created X.com, an online bank, in November 1999. The company immediately merged with Confinity Software and changed its name to PayPal, which was purchased by eBay for $1.5 billion in 2001.

Musk purchased the rights to X.com from PayPal in 2017, claiming nostalgia as a reason. Visitors were initially sent to The Boring Company’s website, however, the site now simply has a single black “x” in the top left corner of an all-white page.

4. The Boring Company

After becoming dissatisfied with traffic in Los Angeles and the constraints of two-dimensional transit networks, Musk launched The Boring Company in December 2016. The company wants to build subterranean tunnels that will let pedestrians, freight, utilities, and autonomous electric vehicles to bypass traffic on surface highways and get from point A to point B more quickly.

The business has suggested a number of projects, including a passenger tunnel connecting Washington, DC, and Baltimore, Maryland. The business has a test tunnel in Hawthorne, California, and a project to ferry people around the Las Vegas Convention Center campus under construction in Las Vegas.

The Boring Company recently made headlines when it sold 20,000 flamethrowers to customers, bringing approximately $10 million in sales. The “Not-a-Flamethrower” could have been a publicity gimmick or a strategy to raise funds without incurring debt or diluting ownership.

5. Neuralink

Musk founded Neuralink Corporation in July 2016 to build an implantable brain-machine interface. Initially, the company intends to use the technology to enable people with paralysis regain freedom by controlling computers and mobile devices. People will be able to communicate via text or speech synthesis, surf the web, and express their creativity through photography, art, and writing apps, according to the business.

As a proof of concept, Musk introduced Gertrude, a pig with a coin-sized computer chip in its brain, in August 2020. According to Musk, Neuralink has been granted an FDA breakthrough device classification, allowing it to conduct limited human testing in accordance with FDA criteria.

6. OpenAI

Musk co-founded OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research lab, in December 2015. Musk stepped down from the company’s board of directors in February 2018, though he remains a major donor.

OpenAI aims to create a machine with human intelligence while putting transparency and security first. The lab will offer its first commercial product in June 2020. The API allows organizations to use OpenAI’s strong general-purpose text generating AI, which has been trained on trillions of words from the internet. The lab has been hesitant to release the entire version of the text creation AI since it could be abused.
