University of Washington board of regents.
In 1975 Bill Gates and Paul Allen created a partnership called MICROSOFT.While attending Harvard,Bill and Paul kept working on a project.The project was to create software for a company called
MITS Altair.
Bill continuously kept missing school to work on the software.Eventually he dropped out and put all his focus on the project.


After 5 years of hard work and dedication Bill and Paul finally finished their project.Once they handed it over to Altair they immediately began to install it into their computers. After that they started selling their product.
