William Henry Gates III co-founded Microsoft in 1975 and was able to turn the start-up then miniature software company into today’s successful multi-billion giant corporation. Bill Gates was also able to establish himself as the world’s richest man in the process of building his astonishing business. His current net worth is estimated to be $72 billion.
But before Bill Gates was the CEO of the Microsoft empire he had gone through some very interesting periods in his early childhood development. Gates grew up in a flourishing area in Seattle, Washington. At the age of 13 he was enrolled in the Lakeside School. This is where his first interaction with the world of computers happened.
He began studying and practicing the writing of program codes as well as testing different programs as a freelancer. At that point the administration of his school noticed his programming skills and decided to give him a special task. Young Gates had to write the school’s program code for the computer software that scheduled students into classes. He modified the code to his advantage by placing himself into a class with mostly female students. Even from a young age Bill Gates had an impressive vision of how he could benefit from his superior and unique talents.
