Foundations of a Great Company – Microsoft

Company Name: Microsoft

Honestly, I’m not much of a Microsoft person. I’d prefer to have everything Apple. But looking at some of the company information I started to realize how great of a company it is.3ec2fc1e-697f-416f-b75b-5bd2638f9110_22.png

Microsoft was founded on April 4th 1975 by Bill Gates (You’ve probably heard of him) and Paul Allen. In 2013 Bill Gates was one of the richest people on earth. Microsoft is known for their computers but the also make tablets, smart watches, and phones. As of 2016 Microsoft had 118 584 employees and was worth $438.98 billion which really shows how large it is. Some of Microsofts subsidiaries include Skype technologies (Skype), Nokia, Mojang (Minecraft), and over 100 others. The CEO, Satya Nadella, was born in India on August 19th 1967. He learned electrical engineering in India and he learned about computers and business in the U.S. Microsofts annual revenue is $93 580 000 000 and it has over $176 Billion in assets. Microsoft has an awesome logo which is important in any industry and has some great products. Microsoft is in charge of Microsoft Word which I use constantly. They’re also in charge of Bing which is almost as good as Google. If I were you I’d definitely invest in Microsoft right away!

That’s all for now, Ben
