Bill Gates is an American entrepreneur and businessman. He famously dropped out of Harvard University and found Microsoft with his hometown friend Paul Allen.

Thanks to the success of Microsoft, he became one of the richest men in the world—a title he held for 13 years—at the age of 31 in 1986. Gates stepped down as Microsoft’s chairman to focus on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
