Bill Gates (1955-)

From multi-billionaire CEO of Microsoft to super-philanthropist, Bill Gates has touched the world in grand fashion. His software can be found in a majority of the world’s computers and as one of the world’s leading philanthropists, through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, his contribution to more than 100 countries, many of which are developing countries, focuses on practical considerations, from immunization to micro-financing, that make a real difference in the everyday lives of millions of people. Such philanthropy, like in the case of Warren Buffett, sets a powerful example and reminds the wealthiest among us that giving back in smart ways is an ethical no-brainer.
