REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

William LeGate Biography

William LeGate is an American entrepreneur, Thiel Fellow, computer programmer and activist. A self-taught programmer from the age of 12, LeGate was brought to the public's attention three years later when The New York Times recommended one of the iOS applications he had programmed during middle school.

Upon graduating high school, billionaire PayPal co-founder and investor Peter Thiel awarded LeGate—then aged 18—with a Thiel Fellowship, a US$100,000 grant given annually to around 20 people under 20 years of age on the condition that they drop out of school in order to pursue an entrepreneurial path. The apps that he made have been downloaded over 7 million times.

Toward the end of his Thiel Fellowship, LeGate began creating the Ponder mobile application of which he was listed as co-founder and CEO. The New York Post dubbed Ponder as the 'anti-Kardashian' photo sharing app with Teen Vogue adding that Ponder is "drama-free. No trolls, bullying, or negativity. Just cool photos & videos."

LeGate is also the Founder and CEO of PredIQt, the first decentralized prediction market capable of offering a user-experience that rivals that of traditional centralized alternatives. PredIQt is built on the EOS.IO blockchain and powered by Everipedia's IQ token.

LeGate’s latest business venture is Good Pillow, which aims to compete with Mike Lindell’s MyPillow. LeGate’s business partner is gun control activist (and Parkland school shooting survivor) David Hogg.
