    I don't see how. Tesla is way past the VC stage.

    Probably has no effect on Tesla. Draper is focusing on Draper University it seems. The company I work for has done contracting work for DFJ for years, and has worked at Draper U. Rumors I've heard have been that Mr. Draper has been taking a less active role in DFJ for years now.

    One of the assignments for the students at Draper U (school for entrepreneurs / start-up accelerator type place) is writing bucket lists on the whiteboard walls for all to see. I was delighted to see the number of 18ish yr old students who had "Own A Tesla" and "Meet Elon Musk" on their bucket lists.
