Jimmy Wales

Founder of Wikipedia

Language:

English

Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia and Leading Technology Futurist, is one of the most sought after visionaries in business and technology. Wikipedia is the 5th Most Popular Website in the world, moving toward free access for all to the sum of human knowledge. When audiences meet Wales, outspoken and defiant in his protection of this transformative idea, they understand why he is compared to other other historic personalities like Gutenberg. Event planners cite his optimism for the future and his masterful ability to speak on issues ranging from censorship, artificial intelligence (AI), driverless cars, and government reach into web data the name of national security.

Named one of Time magazine's "100 Most Influential People," Jimmy Wales was also acknowledged by the World Economic Forum —the foremost global gathering of political, business and cultural leaders— as one of the top 250 leaders across the world for his professional accomplishments, his commitment to society, and his potential to contribute to shaping the future of the world.
