Meaning / What does it mean:
Elon Musk started companies that are “important” – Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity. He founded Tesla because he felt sustainable transportation was important for human mankind. He founded SpaceX because he felt that it was important that human beings become a multi-planetary species. In addition, he founded SolarCity because he felt that sustainable energy production (Solar) was vital as well. All these companies were more likely to fail than succeed when he first started. But because he felt it was important, he still did it.
