Despite his popularity, there are many things that the world does not know about Bill Gates, the man behind the American multinational company Microsoft. If you ever wonder what kind of person Gates is off the stage and behind the cameras, allow us to introduce a few fascinating facts.
1. He is a college drop out
Two years into his college education, Gates dropped out of Harvard University to take a shot at life and start Microsoft. The business eventually made him a millionaire by 26. In 2010, the Harvard Crimson called Gates “Harvard’s most successful dropout”.
In 2007, Gates came back to Harvard to accept an honorary Doctor of Laws degree. This award is given by the university without the need for the completion of the usual requirements of a certain degree.
