mark zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg dropped out of Harvard College in 2004, but yet he is the world's youngest billionaire at 26 years old. This blows my mind. He created facebook in his dorm room with his friends. Some think inspiration came from Philips Exeter Academy which he graduated from in 2002. Facebook was, first, only for Harvard students, but then he spread it to Stanford, Dartmouth, Columbia, New York University, Yale, Cornell, and Brown. After he dropped out of Harvard, he moved out to California to set up an office with his friends. He met Peter Thiel and he invested in Mark's company.

His friends that helped him create Facebook, later filed a lawsuit against him...why? Because they accused Zuckerberg of intentionally making them believe he would help them create a social network called HarvardConnection.com. They filed a lawsuit in 2004, but then was later dismissed.
