Unsurprisingly, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, is Vanity Fair's #1 Disrupter.
The magazine divided the list into "powers that be" and "disrupters"
Last year, Elon Musk came in 5th place on that list. This year he is #1. Some of this year's notables in the Top 50 included:
- Facebook co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg, # 5.
- Uber co-founder, Travis Kalanick, # 9.
- GoPro founder, Nick Woodman, #26.
Vanity Fair commented on Musk's "grand gesture" of opening up Tesla's patents to automakers producing electric vehicles, as well as the sucesses of SpaceX and SolarCity.
