Bill Gates is known as a self-made man and a global innovator.
But when it comes to investing, he’s more likely to be remembered for his achievements in the tech world, rather than his philanthropic work.
In an interview with The Globe and Mail, he acknowledged his legacy in the technology sector is “sadly short.”
In fact, his personal investment record is better than it was five years ago, when he founded Microsoft.
And it’s not just in technology.
His company has been at the forefront of innovation in the sciences, medicine, education and healthcare.
Gates told the newspaper he doesn’t think of himself as a philanthropist, but rather as an investor.
But as the world’s second largest tech investor after Warren Buffett, he says that’s still not enough.
The fact is, it’s still a world in which a lot of people are still making a lot less money than they used to.
Gets it wrongGates is famous for saying that he’s not an investor in his own company.
He’s only one of the many people who have invested in the company and are still doing so.
But when it came to what makes a company successful, he was just wrong.
“I don’t believe that people should invest in companies based on their own performance,” he told The Globe.
“If a company is doing well and is profitable, it will grow.
But if a company’s performance isn’t good, it won’t grow.”
As for why companies like Uber and Airbnb haven’t been able to break into a market that is becoming saturated with cheap, home-based rental options, Gates said he was wrong.
“In the last decade, there have been some very strong companies that have made a significant amount of money,” he said.
“And I think it’s because they were able to do what we didn’t do.”
The tech billionaire is a master at predicting market conditions, and he has been on top of them in recent years.
He is also a very good investor.
Last year, he and his wife gave $100 million to the Carnegie Corporation to fund research into artificial intelligence, which will be funded by a $100 billion fund that Gates controls.
Gays also has a long history of supporting philanthropic causes.
He gave $50 million to Boston University last year, and a lot more to organizations that support the arts and culture.
In 2013, he gave $30 million to Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society to help create a more open society.
Gifts from Gates have helped shape the careers of many of his friends and colleagues in the world of tech.
Among the more notable ones are Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder of Facebook; Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Uber; and Larry Page, co-CEO of Google.
