Following the TEDxChange event last week, Melinda Gates explains why the tech sector has a responsibility to foster change in developing nations.

Melinda Gates is no stranger to technology. After working at Microsoft in various roles for nine years, she understands tech, specifically, how it can help people overcome obstacles, disrupt the status quo and make room for global progress.

Gates is also a social good pioneer. Philanthropist, businesswoman and co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, she has spearheaded efforts to improve health and development around the world.

Seven Lessons from Crowd-Sourcing the World: How Grand Challenges and ... - LinkedIn Today | The Gates Foundation | Scoop.it

In 2010, a small skunkworks team at USAID, working with two external experts, Dr. Rick Klausner, former Executive Director of Global Health at the Gates Foundation, and Dr. Carol Dahl, now head of the Lemelson Foundation, decided to design what was, for USAID, a completely novel approach to development – using open innovation to solve wicked development problems. Using the “Grand Challenges” model, pioneered by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Grand Challenges Canada, USAID adapted their world-class health research program to a means of sourcing and translating innovations around big global challenges. This allowed the Agency to move from incremental to revolutionary advances in its ability to tackle the world’s most difficult problems in many areas of development – health, energy, food security, education, and governance. We sought to pay homage to the genesis of the idea, naming the program Grand Challenges for Development (GCDs).
