Chairman of the Board
Bill Gates is co-founder of Microsoft, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and founder and chairman of TerraPower.
In 1975, Gates founded Microsoft with Paul Allen, and led the company to become the worldwide leader in business and personal software and services. More than 20 years later, guided by the belief that every life has equal value, Gates and his wife, Melinda, established the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In 2008, Gates transitioned from his daily responsibilities at Microsoft to focus full-time with Melinda on their foundation’s work to reduce hunger and poverty globally, harness advances in science and technology to save lives, and improve education in the U.S.
Since 2006, Gates has also served as chairman of TerraPower, a company he helped launch in 2006 that aims to provide the world with a more affordable, secure and environmentally friendly form of nuclear energy.
