Top 8 Tech Billionaires Who Dropped Out of College

Steve Jobs

 

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs finally succumbed to cancer at the age of 56 on October 5, leaving behind a legacy that changed the computer, music, film and wireless industries. His once written-off tech company in August briefly topped ExxonMobil as the most valuable US corporation. The Reed College dropout founded Apple in his garage. Jobs created the Macintosh in 1976 and was fired 9 years later after a power struggle with Chief Exec John Sculley. He returned to Apple in 1996. At the time of his death most of his wealth still came from Disney, due to Disney's purchase of Pixar in 2006; as the largest individual shareholder, he owned about $4.47 billion of Disney stock.
