When it comes to running a startup, successful entrepreneurs need to focus on building a great product, getting a lot of traction, and maybe even making an exit, if that’s what they want. And there’s no harm in doing that with style.
Flashy cars are always nice, and so are boats, but some startup CEOs and founders have taken a different approach when it comes to getting from point A to point B.
About his ride: For being a billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg lives a pretty modest life, at least in terms of transportation. He bought the Acura a few years ago because it was 'safe, comfortable, not ostentatious,' Jose Antonio Vargas of The New Yorker reported in 2010.
About his ride: Even though Apple is no longer a startup, we just had to include Steve Wozniak on his Segway. Woz has publicly expressed his love for the Segway and even rides it while playing polo. 'The Segway gets me around so well in all the places I go to,' Wozniak told Wired's Brian Chen back in 2008.
Company: Tesla and Space X
About his ride: Musk eventually wants to build a colony of over 80,000 people on Mars. For now, SpaceX's Dragon capsule is making regular trips to the International Space Station, but Musk, and other people, have yet to go up there.
Title: Co-founder and CEO
About his rides: Other than the Tesla roadster, Page has a pretty sweet $45 million yacht called Senses.
Head on over to the New Zealand Herald to check out a photo of Page's luxurious ride.
About his ride: Arrington ordered a custom-made Coastal Craft boat in 2011, but still has yet to receive it due to a snafu with the Department of Homeland Security. The image to the right is not of Arrington's actual boat, but of the Coastal Craft 560 IPS.
About his rides: People have spotted Larry Ellison driving a Lexus LFA, a car that starts at $350,000, and a slew of other vehicles. But his most prestigious ride would have to be the McLaren F1. In 1998, it was dubbed the fastest car on the road.
