Elon Musk: Lessons on Entrepreneurship from SpaceX, Tesla

Elon Musk shares his insights and experiences in launching Tesla Motors and Space X, with underlying lessons in entrepreneurship.

SpaceX CEO and Tesla Motors head, Elon Musk talks about the future of energy and transportation in this 2012 talk at Oxford with interesting lessons in entrepreneurship and the startup journey in this hour-and-a-half talk.

I decided to share this video because it relates some key elements in the success of SpaceX and Tesla, which includes a different approach to analyzing possible business opportunities: 'first principle' versus 'analogy', as well as a fair share of luck. Had the four Falcon I failed, as had the previous three launches, SpaceX would have been bankrupt.
