Today our CEO Satya Nadella spoke at #WeDay Seattle, encouraging students to use technology to bring about positive change in the world. He shared the stage with 11-year-old social entrepreneur Mikaila Ulmer. @mikailasbees is the founder and CEO of Me & the Bees, an organic lemonade brand available nationwide. He related Mikaila’s story to two other young entrepreneurs: “In fact, the very founding of Microsoft can be traced back to two kids finding their passion in high school and then going on to chase that dream,” he explained. “They changed the landscape of our industry and world as we know it. That’s the power we want to celebrate.”
