Ten years ago, Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin incorporated their tiny company. The reason? So they could cash a $100,000 personal check that had been sitting in Page’s desk drawer for a couple of weeks.As Stanford graduate students, Page and Brin had been working together on a search engine they called “BackRub” since early 1996. By 1998, with the encouragement of Yahoo co-founder David Filo, they decided to start a company, and went looking for investors to back them.
Today, Google is the definitive account of one of the most remarkable organizations of our time. Every day over 64 million people use Google services in more than one hundred languages, making billions of searches for all kind of information.
Google, wish you all the best in the upcoming years and keep believing in your founders’ mantra: DO NO EVIL.
