Sweeney responded: “Sounds doable, account and all my help. Any chance to up that to $50K?”

The 19-year-old cited college funding and told the billionaire the money could go towards buying a Tesla Model 3.

“I’ve done a lot of work on this and 5k is not enough,” Sweeney said in an interview with Insider. He added $5,000 wasn’t enough to replace “the fun I have in this, working on it.”
