Stephen Coller

Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

Stephen Coller is a Senior Program officer in the Next Generation Models team. In this role Stephen sponsors current and emerging technologies and platforms that help children to attain college readiness and enable system transformation in the process.

Stephen joined the Foundation in July 2010 from Microsoft, where he worked as a Senior Director of Technology Policy and Strategy. In this role Stephen helped develop Microsoft’s vision for the connection between technology and core societal issues and convert that vision into a set of policy recommendations for senior government leaders and regulatory bodies around the world. In the U.S., Stephen served on Secretary Duncan’s National Education Technology Plan working group. Earlier in his career at Microsoft, he worked on virtual server, cloud platform, and application products and technologies. Stephen began his time at Microsoft as the Chief of Staff to the CFO and before that worked in financial services and consulting, including tours of duty at Goldman Sachs, Peregrine Partners, and Marakon Associates.

Over the course of his career Stephen has seen the migration from Vax superminis to iPhones, from floppies to flash, and from NTTP and FTP to TCP/IP. Now that we find ourselves edging toward a semantic web and the prospect it holds out for a huge leap forward in our species’ collective learning capability, he is extremely excited to bring these experiences and technologies to bear in the service of a better learning experience for every child.
