Elon Musk, who was born on June 28, 1971, in Pretoria, South Africa, is a prominent entrepreneur impacting various sectors globally. Holding both South African and American citizenships, Musk co-founded PayPal, an innovative electronic payment company, and founded SpaceX, known for its advanced spacecraft and launch vehicles. He is a key figure at Tesla, the electric car manufacturer, serving as one of its initial major investors and its CEO. In 2022, he made headlines by acquiring and later rebranding the social media platform Twitter as X.

Musk has a diverse background, with a South African father and a Canadian mother. Showing an early aptitude for computers and entrepreneurship, he created a video game at just 12 years old and sold it to a computer magazine. Musk moved to the United States in 1988 after gaining Canadian citizenship, motivated by his desire to escape South Africa’s apartheid and pursue greater economic opportunities in the U.S.

Musk began his higher education at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, and later transferred to the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where he obtained bachelor’s degrees in physics and economics in 1997. He briefly joined a graduate physics program at Stanford University but left after two days, opting to focus on the burgeoning internet sector. In 1995, he launched Zip2, a company providing maps and business directories to online newspapers, which was acquired by Compaq for $307 million in 1999. Following this, Musk founded X.com, an online financial services company that eventually became PayPal, acquired by eBay in 2002 for $1.5 billion.
