Entrepreneur of the Year Winners: Where Are They Now?
Michael Dell, 1989
At just 24 years old, Michael Dell--founder and CEO of Dell--was named Inc. Magazine’s entrepreneur of the year in 1989. Today, after 24 years at the helm of the world’s third largest computer hardware manufacturer (by revenue), Dell the entrepreneur has not slowed down. After two decades on the public market, Dell took the PC conglomerate private in October 2013 with a $25 billion deal and restored control over the company he started in college.
