Michael Dell enrolled at the University of Texas as a pre-med student but fell in love with computers instead. As a freshman, Dell used $1,000 to purchase and upgrade old computers and sell them for a profit. Remarkably, Dell sold some $180,000 worth of PCs. He never returned for his sophomore year. The 19-year-old Dell’s Austin-based company soon became one of the fastest-growing enterprises in the country. In 1988, the company went public. Today, Michael Dell has a net worth of approximately 23.5 billion dollars.
