CEO of Apple Tim Cook visited the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, where he spoke to the Armenian Prime Minister, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and also talked about the corporation’s contribution in education.
According to Apple Must, Tim Cook told a German magazine Bild about educational ambitions of Apple.
The interview was held right after an educational curriculum “Everyone Can Create” became available in new languages, including German. In the interview, Tim Cook explained that the corporation considers education as a “Great Leveler”. He noted that not everybody is born with the same resources, but everyone has some kind of creative abilities.
CEO of Apple also touched on the topic of his childhood and the way it affected his creative ambitions.
““I was born in a very rural lower middle class environment. I loved it and it’s great for me but the thing that enabled me to do other things and to be at Apple today is education.”
Concerning educational development, Cook noted, that the company does it for people and it is not the initiative from which he expects the return on investment.
Also on the World Economic Forum in Davos Cook met the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan. Details of their meeting were not disclosed.
Also, Apple’s CEO was seen sitting around the table with such people as Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Brazilian president Bolsonaro and other high rated forum members.
