Happy Friday and welcome back to Business Insider’s weekly roundup of all things A to B.
Around these parts, we spend a fair bit of time trying to suss out who’s likely to be “the next Elon Musk” and the “next Tesla.” These are coveted positions, after all: Musk is now worth $100 billion, he just picked up a fresh Gulfstream private jet, and his upcoming “Battery Day” presentation is so hyped up, he’s holding a lottery to figure out who can attend in person. Meanwhile, Tesla’s market cap has reached more than $424 billion, making it more valuable than Walmart. Musk noted crossing the 420 mark with an uncharacteristically subtle tweet, saying, “These sure are wild times.”
So yeah, we’re pretty interested in figuring out who’s poised to recreate that kind of success. From what we can tell, Rivian and its CEO, RJ Scaringe, have a good shot.
