He’s on the board of Tesla and SpaceX, but Kimbal Musk’s current tech entrepreneurship is focused on food and farming, not transportation. Musk (who is Elon Musk’s brother) is the co-founder and executive chairman of three companies that approach food and agriculture from different angles: Square Roots, a vertical farming company that grows hydroponic herbs in shipping containers, the Kitchen Restaurant Group, which operates farm-to-table restaurants, and Big Green, a non-profit that builds learning gardens in classrooms.
