Similarly, Bill Gates, Microsoft founder in his congratulations said he looks forward to working with the new administration towards getting the pandemic under control. Bill Gates has been a vocal critic of how President Trump handled coronavirus.

Laurene Powell Jobs, founder of Emerson Collective and widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs, also celebrated Biden and Harris’ win in a tweet, noting that the vice president-elect’s victory represents a “glass ceiling shattered once and for all.”

Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins wrote in a tweet that the company aligns with Biden and Harris’ “belief that we must build a more inclusive future for all.”
