Co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen, dies at 65
We usually talk business… but today, it’s important we note an incredibly impactful man’s death. Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft, died Monday at the age of 65. Allen founded Microsoft with Bill Gates all the way back in 1975; however, Allen left the company in 1982 after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease.
But he didn’t stop there… because Allen continued on Microsoft’s board of directors and even went on to establish his own philanthropic foundation. From there, he founded the investment firm, Vulcan. Allen also purchased two professional sports teams: the Portland Trail Blazers and the Seattle Seahawks.
Everything around today… probably wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Paul Allen. Allen was a great businessman, influencer, and a role model for many. So today, we honor and thank an impressive man for all of his achievements!
