A Nuclear Power Company Headquartered in Bellevue? And Bill Gates is the Chairman? Yes – That Bill Gates

TerraPower Bellevue Nuclear Energy Company Bill Gates CEO logoThe other day when cold calling local Bellevue businesses to let them know about our great ad rates and promotion abilities, I happened across a company called Terra Power.  As I was doing my due diligence and making sure I knew who I was calling, I looked at the TerraPower About page.  This is where I started to get interested – it says that “TerraPower is a nuclear energy technology company based in Bellevue, Washington.”
Then I went on to look at TerraPower’s Team page.  It turns out that the World’s Richest Man and Medina resident Bill Gates, who used to have something to do with Microsoft is the Chairman.  Another guy who used to work at Microsoft, Nathan Myhrvold serves as the Vice Chairman.
Since that point, I’ve asked a lot of people if they knew there is a nuclear energy company in Bellevue and nobody has.  Then I tell them that Bill Gates is the Chairman and they are blown away.  I have a feeling I’ll be writing more about this in the near future.
In the meantime, you can follow Terra Power on Twitter (and they are hiring!).  While you are on Twitter, go ahead and follow @BellevueNews too – and don’t forget to subscribe to our weekly e-Newsletter …
