What Was Elon Musk Doing Before Tesla?
Everyone knows Elon Musk as the CEO of Tesla, and one of the most influential people in technology. But what was he doing before Tesla?
Tesla is not his first company. Before becoming a billionaire entrepreneur, Elon worked at Zip2 Corporation. He met his future co-founder and CTO, JB Straubel when they both attended Stanford University together.
Zip2 was an online city guide that provided content for newspapers to incorporate into their websites. It also sold ads on those sites based on its directory information about local businesses – this business model gave rise to Google's AdWords program which it launched two years later in 2000.
Elon left Zip2 after 4 years because he thought that there weren't enough opportunities being created
