This question is likely to strike a chord with a number of those in the startup space, as a regular ongoing conversation - and sometimes a point of contention - is the extent to which startups should work with corporate partners.
Our answer? No. It's not fair that we have so much wealth when billions of others have so little.

It's nearly the entirety of our children's lives.

However, the most frequently asked question on the Gates' list is about the current US president: "How are President Trump's policies affecting your work?" He also writes that "the America First worldview concerns me", noting that "my view is that engaging with the world has proven over time to benefit everyone, including Americans, more often than withdrawing does". There's another issue at the heart of this question. "With social media, you have to be prepared to continue that conversation now for pretty much forever".
"The answer is that we think there's always going to be a unique role for foundations".
In relation to their work in Africa and other regions, the co-Chairs of the foundation were asked whether they were imposing their values on other cultures.
