The ebay ex­ec­u­tive turned phi­lan­thropist and film pro­ducer was awarded the Carnegie Medal of Phi­lan­thropy in June. His Skoll Foun­da­tion, which sup­ports so­cial en­trepreneurs, and his Skoll Global Threats fund, which fo­cuses on big prob­lems like global pan­demics, have given out $600 mil­lion. His Par­tic­i­pant Me­dia co­pro­duced Al Gore’s An In­con­ve­nient Se­quel: Truth to Power, which de­buted in July—a fol­lowup to Gore’s 2006 film, An In­con­ve­nient Truth. He shut down his Pivot TV, a cable chan­nel aimed at Mil­len­ni­als, in late 2016 af­ter fail­ing to find enough view­ers.
