In addition to Tesla, Musk is known for creating companies such as SpaceX, The Boring Company, OpenAI, Hyperloop and Neuralink.

In a weekly survey conducted by Benzinga in February, respondents compared Musk to a modern-day Nikola Tesla or Thomas Edison, citing his drive, mental fortitude and unparalleled entrepreneurial spirit.
