Jeff Skoll

Driven by an altruistic purpose that has contradicted his financial accomplishments, entrepreneur-cum-film producer Jeff Skoll has failed to live and behave like your average billionaire. Instead of using his money to make more money, Skoll has tried to use his wealth to affect change in the world - whether it has been introducing computers to Third World peoples so they can sell their goods without being undersold by corporations, or producing films that profit more from raising social consciousness than from the box office, Skoll has developed a unique vision and model for future entrepreneurs to follow. Though the jury hasn't reached a final verdict on whether or not his mission will be successful, one thing has been certain - his drive to do genuine good in the world has remained unfettered and unchanged.
