The Mission of the Foundation:

The Tesla Foundation is a Science and Technology Think Tank specializing in “All Things Autonomous” and the transition to the 4th Stage of the Industrial Revolution. Just as our workforce migrated from “Farm to Factory” we are now seeing a similar process taking place from “Factory to Autonomous Applications.” Robots have left the building, our students, educators, and workforce must be educated and transitioned to live and thrive in a hyper-connected virtual and robotic labor force. This is the mission and purpose of the Tesla Foundation, to move at the pace of technology with science, creativity, value, integrity, trust, and urgency to foster a better today and tomorrow.

The Tesla Foundation accomplishes its non-profit goals utilizing the combined efforts of its; think tank, technology farm system, research, education, public private partnerships, applications, and high level educational events and summits.

“It is the responsibility of those that can shape our future to integrate all technology in a safe and ethical manner for all of humankind.”

Keith R. Kaplan – CEO/Co-Founder Tesla Foundation
