Elon Musk's Trinity: Twitter, Tesla and SpaceX, but there is Boring and Neuralink too

Musk also owns two smaller start-up ventures, Neuralink and The Boring Company.

Elon Musk is now boss man at three of the world's biggest companies Tesla, Twitter and SpaceX, one of whom he founded and the rest two he acquired. So what does the Musk empire really look like now, Editorji takes a look.

SpaceX: After selling off Paypal to e-Bay in 2002, the world's richest man shifted his focus on working towards his long-held desire for humanity to become a multiplanet species and founded SpaceX. This private aerospace platform is now the second-most valuable private company in the world worth over $100 billion dollars, making it one of the rare private “centicorn” or “hectocorn” companies in the world — a $1 billion unicorn 100 times over.

Tesla: The 'technoking' of the EV company is not 'technically' the founder. Tesla was incorporated in 2003 by engineers Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning. Musk stepped into Tesla in 2004, as an investor when he provided $6.35 million of the company's initial $6.5 million in Series A funding. But undoubtedly over the last 18 years, he has been the face of Tesla's EV Tsunami that has taken the world by storm.

Boring Company: Elon Musk’s tunneling startup founded in 2016 has only one aim, to solve the congestion and traffic troubles for major cities such as Los Angles. The company already has a tunnel system in place at the Las Vegas Convention Center and ferried around passengers at the CES conference earlier this year.

Neuralink: "We will not be able to be smarter than a digital supercomputer, so, therefore, if you cannot beat 'em, join 'em," that is the Musk Mantra that in 2016 led to the inception of the company that wants to put microchips in people's brains; Neurolink. With a billion-dollar valuation, this once under the radar startup is looking at ways for the human brain to have a symbiotic relationship with artificial intelligence.

With an estimated value of over $260 billion, South Africa-born Musk who already has his hands full is now evolving to be a Media Mogul.
