David Risher


Bethesda, USA, 1965

His dream is to use technology to spread the transforming power of education to every corner of the planet, and his most immediate goal is to reach 1 million children by 2015. With this mission in mind, he founded Worldreader, an initiative launched in Barcelona to unleash the potential of millions of children in developing countries using digital books. The falling costs of technology together with the growth of mobile telephone networks in many countries enable all the books and educational resources to be distributed to even the most isolated schools through this collaboration initiative. He was also Vice-President for Worldwide Retail at Amazon.com and a senior executive at the Microsoft Corporation.
