The buzz: “A techno-philanthropist can be ‘a young, idealistic iPad jet setter who cares about the world–the whole world–in a new way'" (Peter Diamandis).
Technology has created techno-philanthropists who use their money to try to solve seemingly unsolvable problems such as hunger and disease, by driving acceleration across the Sciences and Technology.
For example, Bill Gates’s brainchild Breakthrough Energy Ventures (BEV) investment fund aims to accelerate energy innovation via high-profile investors Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Jack Ma, and Michael Bloomberg. Why and what would you give? The experts speak. Frank Diana, TCS: “On the face of it, shareholder value is the dumbest idea in the world’’ (Jack Welch). Gray Scott, Futuristic Now: “Right now, and for the first time ever, a passionate and committed individual has access to the technology, minds, and capital required to take on any challenge” (Peter Diamandis).
