Isn't that self-evidently false? On at least a superficial level it's a constant part of the conversation. It has in many ways precipitated the debate around self-driving cars by putting the technology in the open (for better and worse and also it's not-quite-there but still!). There's a really strong argument to be made that Tesla has accelerated the development of electric cars at more mainstream manufacturers and pushed large-battery technology substantially forward.

Even if Tesla vanished tomorrow, it would be very hard to say it has had no impact.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
