Founder & Executive Director, Khan Academy

“Each one, teach one" is a laudable goal, but it led Salman Khan to tutor his young cousin in math, even though the two of them were not in the same town. So, he devised video tutorials that went viral on YouTube, and now Khan's eponymous Khan Academy has each one teaching thousands every day. Since launching three years ago, the Khan Academy has provided 150 million lessons over the Internet and is the most-used library of videos on the Web. According to its Web site, the lessons are open to all, even "a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology."
