Session 1: My amazing experience at the Bill and Melinda Gates Giving Conference and what I learned from the top philanthropists.

Overview of the day!

The morning first started with a fireside chat with some inspiring leaders in the non-profit sectors where they talked about the importance of giving back to inspire the next generation. These conversations were super interactive and engaging and I even got to ask questions to gain insight about being a youth founder!!

Conversations with Bill and Melinda Gates

The highlight of the afternoon was having the opportunity to learn and speak with Bill and Melinda Gates (Founders of Gates Foundation). Not only are they visionaries but they are true philanthropists! This is truly an experience I will never forget.

Key Learnings!

  1. Your organization’s purpose is not to serve a select group but to get more people to start giving.
