Napster co-founder and former Facebook president Sean Parker is an ambitious guy. During our interview, he told me the same innovation and tenacity that are behind the greatest technological breakthroughs can and should be used to find cures for some of the biggest global health epidemics. To date, he’s pledged $ 600 million of his own wealth to the Parker Foundation hoping to tackle two causes close to his heart: cancer and allergies.

“I think I still consider myself a technologist… I’ll always be interested in technology and how you use technology to solve problems in the world.” — Sean Parker
