19 Bill Gates Quotes About Business And The Real World

If you take an interest in the Bill Gates quotes and speeches, you’d think some entrepreneurs would recommend computer programming be taught as a second language in school.

Bill Gates began programming when he was just 13 years old. It would only be a few years later that he met Steve Jobs at the Homebrew Computer Club where these 2 boys would go on to change the world, both together and separately.

It was Bill’s technological innovation, keen business strategy that he and partner Paul Allen built the world’s largest software business, Microsoft. In the process, Gates became one of the richest men in the world.

Bill Gates recently gave a speech to high school students about things they will not learn in school.

He talks about how the reality of the real world tends to be nothing like that described in the education system.
