Elon Musk Co-founded 3 different companies; each one aims to solve one of the biggest problems of our generation.
  • Absolutely zero fear of risk; he is willing to put his entire bankroll on a single project (500m+ invested in his own companies)
  • Arguably the most brilliantly diverse engineer of our time.
  • His level of optimism and determination is unmatched by anyone of our era. Elon will literally not stop a project until it succeeds, regardless of its size (http://www.wired.com/science/spa...)
Forget about iPhones and iPads, Elon is trying to solve some of the biggest problems of this world's future.

And he's doing so without being properly noticed. So my perspective; that alone makes him the greatest Entrepreneur of our time.
