How did a high school dropout become a billionaire?
The school dropout who becomes a successful entrepreneur seems like a typical Silicon Valley success story, but where the likes of Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg dropped out of university, Nikhil Kamath left school at the age of 14 with no qualifications.
