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

We must take notice and act to assure that the youth of our nation are prepared for the “New Economy” of Industry 4.0. The “Tesla Technology Farm System” the TTFS creates the technology superstars of today in the same way our professional sports farm system creates its superstars.


A Think Tank for Industry 4.0

As we transition from Industry 3.0 to 4.0 our great nation is and can continue to be the engine of our global innovations and commercializations. We as Americans can and will continue to be the melting pot that moves mankind forward.

Innovation + Commercialization = Great Ideas

When innovators and capital are managed with intelligence and responsibility great things happen. Mankind is improved with responsible technology transfer and great wealth is created for many.



American Innovation and Commercialization are the engines of Global Commerce. During our transition to Industry 4.0 identifying and encouraging opportunity for all is essential. As we migrate from the factory to the autonomous application we must evolve and innovate all systems to integrate man and machine for the betterment of us all.  We encourage you to become involved and help shape the future of mankind.
