While Elon and Kimbal Musk have similar roots, the brothers branched out into different endeavors. Elon is busy building electric cars and extending life into Mars. Kimbal is striving to improve the well-being of communities across America through food.
In a rare interview with Jeff Skoll, widely known as eBay’s first employee, a generous philanthropist, and producer of social change films, the Musk brothers talk about their first ventures together, what they admire in each other, what they think allows them to be so successful, the people they admire, and why they – particularly Elon – focus on the Internet, sustainable energy, and Mars.
Tip: At the end of the interview, the brothers are asked what their views are on impact investing and social ventures.
