Ted Waitt, founder and former Chairman and CEO of Gateway, Inc., helped revolutionize how people use technology to live, work, and play through pioneering the direct marketing of personal computers. Labeled a maverick by national business publications, he has gone on to form two enterprises that are his chief interests: Avalon Capital Group, Inc., a wholly-owned, billion-dollar private investment company with diverse interests in technology, health care, finance, and real estate; and the Waitt Family Foundation and Institutes, nonprofit organizations dedicated to the improvement of mankind’s knowledge through historical and scientific exploration.

Through the Waitt Family Foundation, Ted has become one of America’s 50 most generous philanthropists, according to Business Week. The Foundation and its related Insititutes fund partnerships and projects that seek a deeper understanding of human history and improve mankind’s knowledge through historical and scientific exploration.

Established in 1993, the Foundation initially focused on domestic violence prevention and community development, knowing that building stronger families and societies will help foster the vision of a better world. The creation of the Waitt Institutes in 2005 — the Waitt Institute for Discovery, and the Waitt Institute for Violence Prevention — has allowed the Foundation to broaden its program interests to the global community.

Waitt serves as the Chairman of the Founding Fathers campaign of the Family Violence Prevention Fund, just one of the efforts that he supports in the fight to prevent domestic violence. Waitt was appointed by Congress to serve on the Advisory Commission on Electronic Commerce and has served on numerous other corporate and philanthropic boards of directors, including the Advisory Council of the National Geographic Society and as a board member of the Jonas Salk Institute for Biological Studies.
