In today’s world, if we look around, the streets are filled with shopping malls, mini malls, and mini marts, etc. They serve as a commercial junction to major league enterprises to sell and/or repair their products. When you take a walk on those streets, you start wondering who owns this (famous) brand. There are times when you research about an enterprise on your own and find out about the student entrepreneurs who started it. Some of them were younger than you when they started it, and somehow the fact makes you more interested in their lives.
Here are a few remarkable student entrepreneurs who made their plans become larger than life:
#1/ #2 Bill Gates and Paul Allen
It seems to have become a habit of every blogger to mention these people and Microsoft in all the blogs. It’s like they are omnipresent. They’re in your offices, at your homes, and in your pockets too, if you like it old fashioned. Microsoft were the first who ever come up with a smartphone. First time with the PDA and later with the Windows OS based complete touch screen phones. Both of ‘em didn’t work out as they were expected.
Bill Gates and Paul Allen formed Microsoft on April 4th, 1975 in New Mexico. Currently, they are manufacturing a lot of best-selling products such as Windows OS, Office Suite, Xbox, Forza Horizon, and many more. Bill and Paul’s idea made Microsoft what it is today, and it made them multi-billionaires as well.
#3 Mark Zuckerberg
He operates as CEO and Chairman of Facebook. On February 4th 2004, Mark along with his Harvard fellow students and roommates Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz, Chris Hughes, and Andrew McCollum formed the enterprise. They first released it particularly for their college. Their next step was to introduce the social networking platform to other colleges as well. The idea started becoming successful, and before we know it, about all the businesses and individuals started using Facebook.
The idea connected everyone with each other and in the hindsight made Zuckerberg a multi-billionaire. A net worth of $74 billion and Forbes Ranker 5th in the richest person category is something every college student dreams of.
#4 Matt Mullenweg
Wordpress is a web platform which is most commonly used to share blogs and other services. Matt and Mike Little started working on the website in January 2003. Back at that time, they were working on b2 codebase in a respond to which original b2 developer, Michael Valdrighi joined them in their quest. In October 2004, CNET recruited Matt to work on his project ‘Wordpress’. He left that company in 2005 to work on his project which later made him enjoy a net worth of $40 million.
#5 #6Larry Page and Sergey Brin
Their foundation Google didn’t earn much in its early years as they had a policy of not showing any advertisements on their page. Later they changed it, and when they did everyone rushed to advertise their stuff on the website. It made Larry and Sergey a lot of money. Both the entrepreneurs enjoy a net worth of around $45 Billion each.
As a college student, the dependency of our lives rests completely in our hands. We can either work hard and be responsible for our actions, or we blame it to the group, there’s no other way. The student entrepreneurs that we talked about today, blamed themselves for their mistakes and worked on them. In addition to that, they tend to pay attention to the product than the process, and it’s one of the qualities that made them what they are today.
