Elon Musk, who has been hailed as the prodigy of success and one of the richest men on the planet is no doubt the entrepreneur of the century. He has made commercial space travel possible, and introduced the new series of Tesla models with cutting edge features. On the other hand, Apple has made tremendous profits and revenue thanks to their series of iPhones and iPads. Their financial growth has been stable due to the fact, that consumers are always willing to buy electronic gadgets, particularly mobile phones. Consequently, Elon Musk has been the pioneer of innovation and brilliance. So, what may happen if the budget revenues of Apple and the innovation of Musk are combined?
As stated by CNBC, “There’s no real world shocking innovation happening anymore from Apple,’ the fellow at Arthur & Toni Rembe Rock Center for Corporate Governance at Stanford University, told ‘Closing Bell.’ ‘It was nine years ago that the iPhone came out … since then it’s been giving us bigger screens and smaller screens … and we go along,’ he noted, before adding that Apple’s series imitates Netflix.” This clearly shows that Apple has become the new Microsoft meaning that it lacks innovation, and needs a team of brilliant innovators to boost up its reputation and revenues. “Meanwhile, Tesla is amazingly innovative, transforming our society in a number of sectors, all united by a future-facing commitment to clean energy and better design. The company makes cars, energy storage systems, solar roofs—and they likely won’t stop there. It seems like every few months, they come out with a new major R&D announcement. This is because Tesla places an enormous emphasis on new ideas, and although not all of them work, enough of them do that investors are inspired to buy Tesla.”
What if Elon Musk becomes the CEO of this tech giant, while also merging SpaceX program with the company? Imagine, the heights of accomplishments that might be achieved and breakthroughs that may occur.
As said by Tim Cook, “It’s an interesting idea—one that could be very beneficial for both companies.”
