The founding of Dell is thanks to one man: Michael Dell. To understand how Dell got its start as a company, we have to take it back to 1984, when Michael Dell was still in college.
The first Dell computers were sold via national magazines. Dell chose this outlet so that they could offer customers lower prices by selling direct.
Dell’s first PCs paved the way for explosive growth. In the first year alone, Dell saw a whopping $73 million dollars in sales. After the first couple of years, Dell began to expand onto the global stage and set up offices in the United Kingdom.
The 1990s were a busy decade for Dell. In 1992, Michael Dell became the youngest CEO of a Fortune 500 company when Fortune included Dell in its list of 500 largest companies in the world. By this time, Dell had begun to test the waters in different sales channels.
