An American investor, business magnate, author and philanthropist, Bill Gates has all those qualities a perfect entrepreneur must possess. It was in 1975 when Bill Gates and friend Paul Allen co-founded Microsoft, and this became the largest PC software company in the world.
Bill Gates in his career at Microsoft held a prestigious position as the Chairman and CEO of the company. Gates is considered one of the best-known entrepreneurs of the personal computer revolution. He has been criticized for his business tactics which have been considered as anti-competitive.
It was in 2009 when Bill Gates started The Giving Pledge along with Warren Buffet, whereby they and other billionaires pledge to give away half of their wealth to philanthropy. He stepped down as the Chairman of Microsoft in February 2014 and took a new post of Technology Advisor to support the then newly appointed CEO Satya Nadella.
Bill Gates is currently the richest person in the world with an estimated net worth of $ 86.9 billion as of April 2017.
