About Bill Gates

On September 25, 2015 the initiative The Global Goals is launched all over the world, which sees Bill and Melinda two of the protagonists together with many other activists and artists including: Malala Yousafzai, Anastacia, Stephen Hawking, Stevie Wonder, Kate Winslet, the Regina Rania of Jordan, Jennifer Lopez, Meryl Streep and many others.

During a keynote held on the occasion of the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, which was held from 23 to 27 January 2008, Gates invokes the beginning of a new era in the name of creative capitalism.

By creative capitalism, Gates means a system in which the technological progress made by companies are not exploited simply for the logic of profit, but also to bring development and well -being especially where there is more need, that is, in the poorest areas in the world.

Together with his wife, in 2000 Gates founded the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, a private humanitarian organization that deals with fighting some diseases such as AIDS especially in the third world.
