While some students prefer to study or hang out with their friends during their downtime, others were making themselves a little more useful. Some of the biggest and most successful companies in the world were founded by students. It was a challenging feat where many of today’s most famous founders and CEOs had to either drop out of school or put their lives on hold to get their businesses off the ground. These students never gave up on their dreams and turned their business ventures into multi-million and even multi-billion dollar companies.

The thought of a warm cookie started this multi-million dollar company.

After four and a half decades Microsoft has grown to be one of the top Fortune 500 companies in the world. The multinational technology company was founded on April 4, 1975 in Albuquerque, New Mexico by childhood friends Paul Allen and Bill Gates. Gates was studying at Harvard University, while Allen had just dropped out of Washington State University.

As of today, their company has grown to have a revenue of $125.8 billion with 144,106 employees worldwide. They came up with the name by shortening ‘microcomputer software’ and are now headquartered in Redmond, Washington.
