Primarily, Tesla manufactures high-end electric vehicles. The objective of this firm is to bring such vehicles that are not just greener for the environment but far more superior than others available in the market. This is what makes them stand out from other manufacturers across the world. In comparison to petrol cars, Tesla cars are safer, faster and look extremely voguish and cool.

One of the reasons that drew me closer to this company was Elon Musk. Over the last decade, he has come out as an idol for many around the world. His goals and objectives are much simpler than others. He is consistently in his pursuit to save humanity. And, with an intention to do something different, he has now become the richest man in the world. I admire his commitment, vision and fierce intellect. So far, he has done an outstanding job to bring Tesla into the limelight.

I hope, in years of come, the rest of the world will follow suit and use environment-friendly methods to power their vehicles; thus, partially reversing the damage done to the earth.

I’d like to talk about Zalora group, one of the leading companies specializing in selling clothes.

It is an e-commerce company for online shopping purposes and provides a wide variety of style as well as current fashion trends for both men and women. The company has been through so many ups and downs that there was a time when they were on the edge of bankruptcy. At first, I didn’t care much about it, not until I came across an eye-catching dress when going shopping in the mega mall.  What amazed me is that the price is much cheaper than other brands so I can get the best offer without asking for a bargain. Normally it would take me 3 days for the merchandise to be delivered but in just only 2 days I received it. Another thing is that the refund policy of ZALORA is much better than Lazada which is its competitor. Customers can return unpleasing products within 10 days and get a brand new one with a similar price so that’s the reason why ZALORA has great customer base than any competitors. Lately, the company has  expanded its chain all over the place, therefore, customers no longer have to wait for delivered products and can enjoy great service from (16) physical stores.

Starting from modest investment to a leading company that has (18) highly profitable and thousands of employees, ZALORA is an icon for lots of start-ups and youngsters running their own businesses.
