Harvard Dropout Bill Gates Takes Online MIT Course, Discovers a new Investment Opportunity

by Al Fin, Alfin

It is never too late to have a dangerous childhood, and it is never too late for a dropout such as Bill Gates to go back to school — even if for only one online course.  According to Phil Giudice, the CEO of a battery startup called Liquid Metal Battery, his company found their most high profile investor, Bill Gates, through a more unusual way: the classroom. …Gates started taking a class from Liquid Metal Battery founder and MIT Professor Don Sadoway via MIT’s online open-course program. Gates took Sadoway’s 34-lecture series on batteries and contacted Sadoway by email to meet with him and learn more, said Giudice.
