Elon Musk seems to fit this group not only perfectly, but in more than one of these groups. I’ve never let my admiration of Elon Musk escape my writing. On occasion, I’ve had people suggest that you could almost hear me working on his zipper in my love for the work he’s done.

Whether you’re a fan of the term serial entrepreneur, or not, it certainly applies. This man was once nearly broke after PayPal was sold and he saw his millions. He can’t seem to stop himself and goes full speed ahead, and perhaps 800 miles an hour if his transportation ideas, outside Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) (the Hyperloop) is ever realized.

The term ‘extreme entrepreneur’ is also bandied about quite regularly, and while that suggests that he sketches his ideas while sky diving, something that someday Google Glass or other wearable technology might allow for, it’s equally dismissive. ‘Extreme’ and ‘serial’ often have negative connotations as adjectives.

All that said, it’s certainly a fine addition to IGNITION’s panel if not a coup, for someone as busy as Musk appears to be. This is a man that took Tesla to wild success from a $0 market capitalization in a very short period of time.

The conference will be held in New York, spanning the 11th to the 13th of November this year at the Time Warner Center.

While studying economics, Brendan found himself comfortably falling down the rabbit hole of restaurant work, ultimately opening a consulting business and working as a private wine buyer. On a whim, he moved to China, and in his first week following a triumphant pub quiz victory, he found himself bleeding on the floor based on his arrogance. The same man who put him there offered him a job lecturing for the University of Wales in various sister universities throughout the Middle Kingdom. While primarily lecturing in descriptive and comparative statistics, Brendan simultaneously earned an Msc in Banking and International Finance from the University of Wales-Bangor. He's presently doing something he hates, respecting French people. Well, two, his wife and her mother in the lovely town of Antigua, Guatemala. <i>To contact Brendan or give him an exclusive, please contact him at [email protected]</i>
