Top 8 Tech Billionaires Who Dropped Out of College
Michael Dell


Michael Dell , the original dorm-room entrepreneur, has seen his fortune grow $1.3 billion in the past year thanks both to Dell's stock, up 18% year on year, and the performance of his investment firm MSD Capital, which now represents the bulk of his wealth. MSD has invested in banking, property, dental practices and landscaping. The Texas mogul has come a long way since he started selling computers in 1984 (he took Dell public in 1988). Dell hasn't been able to reach its 2005 peak, when Michael was worth $18 billion, but the company is exploring new ways to make money, including the acquisition of smaller firms. Michael is also looking to the BRIC countries for manufacturing, R&D and growth opportunities, telling a conference in January: "It is India and China, not India or China."
