Fortune Travels Deep Inside Elon's Universe In Special Digital Edition of Unauthorized Stories
Elon Musk's World: 6 corporations. Operations in 9 countries. A leader with a net worth of $208.6 billion. There's no shortage of controversy surrounding the world's richest man—and his companies are poised to shape our lives for decades to come.
Fortune's standalone digital edition delves into how Musk runs his empire—and illuminates how the idiosyncratic billionaire has adopted a set of management principles that aren't taught in any business school.
Elon Musk's Universe is available today exclusively on Fortune.com
NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Fortune published Inside Elon's Universe: a special digital edition of unauthorized and revealing investigative stories about the companies, management style, and influence of the world's richest man, arguably the most visionary and controversial CEO in business today.
Elon Musk's drills are boring below cities, his rockets and satellites are circling the globe, and his vast AI ambitions are just starting to take shape. But he courts controversy relentlessly—most recently endorsing an antisemitic post on X, which caused several blue-chip advertisers to pull their business from the site. In many ways he is his own worst enemy.
Though he's ubiquitous, Musk's bigger-than-life persona and penchant for wild exaggeration make it hard to comprehend what he's actually building and where his larger aims may lie. Fortune's investigation into his holdings reveals an unusual mix of true technological breakthroughs in some corners, dashed hopes at projects that no longer hold his attention, a corporate culture that one eployee said resembles a "big fire drill every single day."
Taken together, Inside Elon's Universe is a groundbreaking, unauthorized investigation – told through interviews, stories, charts and maps – into how the world's richest man runs an unprecedented empire of corporations that are endlessly controversial, wildly unconventional, and poised to shape our lives for decades to come.
"Why write about the most famous, most covered man in the world? Well, he's the world's wealthiest person, the first person to run six major companies at once, and arguably wields more influence, and ability to polarize, than anyone on the planet," said Alyson Shontell, Fortune editor in chief. "So we decided to examine how all of his companies interconnect, how they are run, and just how they are doing. Much is of course known about Elon already, but we uncovered more."
