Executive summary Bill Gates is a first class entrepreneur both by his career and his background and personality. Microsoft is still a successful company and Bill Gates is still a successful entrepreneur but in this essay we are going to go as deep as possible in the story of Bill Gates and Microsoft as an entrepreneur's story meaning that we will talk about how and why it all started. We won't comment to much about the present which is very interesting too but in the time we have been allowed best is to keep some boundaries. Why Bill Gates is an entrepreneur, what led him to build Microsoft and how did he do it. Those will be the questions raised in this essay.
