Vocate’s Wall of Fame: Bill (and Melinda) Gates
This article is part of our series Vocate’s Wall of Fame. Each person described in the series is someone who has inspired the Vocate team and who we believe represents what “unlocking human potential” means. Quite literally, the Wall of Fame exists in our office (printed out images framed on the wall) and every week we vote on a new honoree.
Bill Gates revolutionized the technology industry when he co-founded Microsoft. As a chairman of Microsoft, Gates is the wealthiest person in the world. The net worth of Microsoft manifests Gates’ success as an entrepreneur. As a philanthropist, Gates allocates a great sum of his money earned from Microsoft to his foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The charity donates billions of dollars mostly to developing countries to aid in poverty.
His brilliance and innovative ideas dramatically altered technology industry, globally changed so many lives, and inspired many entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams. Further, his commitment to impoverished people exemplifies his altruism. Bill Gates found enormous success exploring his passions, and he now shares his successes with others who lack opportunities and resources to explore their dreams.
Hats off to you, Bill! In line with Vocate’s mission, your work has always inspired innovation and improved the lives of others. We are proud to induct you into our Wall of Fame.
