Did You Know
On this day, June 25th, in 1981, Microsoft officially became incorporated after being founded six years prior. Founders Bill Gates and Paul Allen assumed the respective roles of President and Executive Vice President. That same day, Allen also made strategic moves to purchase the rights to Seattle Computer Products' 86-DOS for $30K, with the intention to re-license for IBM PC's. A month later, Seattle Computer originally agreed to the purchase price of $50K, but years later, finally settled with Microsoft at $1M upon discovering the impending deal with IBM.
Have a great week and keep networking!
