    Elon Musk is the most famous CEO of Tesla, but he's not the company's founder. Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning founded the company in 2003 and were the original executives. CNBC sat down with them to talk about the idea for Tesla Motors, the battery, Elon Musk and building its first car, the all-electric Roadster.

They were the original founders however through all the legal things that went on between them and Elon, he was eventually given the co-founder label (I only read this on one site and although reliable could still be wrong, although if you are going to tell me no at least give me some facts)

Hmmm, could have sworn that former CEO Mr. Eberhard's request to be declared one of only two founders of Tesla was struck down by a judge. https://www.cnet.com/news/teslas-musk-gloats-over-eberhard-ruling/ He was also fired from Tesla as well.

Does make you wonder doesn't it? Bunch of innovative guys see an opportunity on a small scale and need to jump through a lot of hoops, and take a lot of risks, to make it work. Then some investor or bussiness comes along, buys the idea, and becomes the face of that brand and act as if they created it. Respect needs to be paid where its due.

We cannot call Elon musk as the co founder as he was only a investor who invested after Tesla was found who later kicked out the Founders taking credit for a company which he has not founded

Irrefutable proofs, that an Entrepreneur, at ANY / EVERY level, MUST compartmentalize an emotional response to the personal "opinions"" & "feeling's of EVERY single person on Earth!!! THIS... is THE lynchpin upon which Success / Failure hinges!! They must be ruthless, in making impossible decisions necessary to drive their companies to success. You’ll never achieve such goals without breaking a few eggs on the way, and trying to make everyone happy!! If you try to make everyone Happy, you’ll make them all unhappy.. and make everyone “like” you.... you end up with the opposite results making EVERYONE angry, & unsatisfied
