Chances are that the Microsoft founder would have a had a lot of trouble turning his ideas into gold if he was born here instead of the US. Unfortunately, it's a reality that faces many of our tech entrepreneurs, who deserve a lot better.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates is today one of the world’s biggest philanthropists having built his business from an obscure traffic management software company to what was at one stage the world’s biggest technology corporation.
