Many well-known people got their start as a “teen on the scene.” Bill Gates was one of them.
The Microsoft founder spent his early teen year attending the prestigious Lakeside prep school in Seattle. While there, Gates discovered his love of computers by writing a computer code for a version of the game of tic-tac-toe.
Gates and friend, Paul Allen, his Microsoft cofounder, went into business together for the first time while they were still in high school. When Gates was 15, the duo created Traf-O-Data, a tool for tracking traffic flow in the area.
After high school, Gates attended Harvard University but dropped out in 1975 to work full-time on Microsoft, which ultimately made him the world’s richest self-made billionaire.
