Steve Ballmer at the Council on Foundations: Every kid deserves a chance at the American Dream

Foundation leaders at a gathering in Spartanburg, South Carolina, heard Steve Ballmer share his passion for using data to help unlock new answers to age-old problems.

“The topic of economic mobility is super important,” Ballmer said at a Council on Foundations conference. “Every kid deserves a chance at the American Dream, to do things their parents couldn’t do.”

Connie and Steve Ballmer, co-founders of Ballmer Group, were in North Carolina and Tennessee to learn about the achievements of two community-based partnerships: Seeding Success in Memphis and the Spartanburg Academic Movement.
