Elon Musk is insanely ambitious. He is the founder, CEO and CTO of SpaceX; co-founder, CEO and product architect of Tesla Motors; chairman of SolarCity, co-chairman of OpenAI; co-founder of Zip2; and co-founder of PayPal. As of March 2016, he has an estimated net worth of US$13.5 billion, making him the 75th wealthiest person in the US.

His goals include reducing global warming through sustainable energy production and consumption, and reducing the “risk of human extinction” by “making life multiplanetary” by setting up a human colony on Mars. This awesome infographic (designed by Anna Vital of Funders and Founders) explains how he built his empire.
