Google founder Larry Page and Sergey Brin

Google founder Larry Page and Sergey Brin (Picture 1)


Two Google founders, Larry Page, Sergey Brin. Back in 1998, the enthusiasm of the Internet reached its peak, and the network was in an "information explosion" state. The only problem was how to find information. At this moment, two young computer graduates who are not known are often wanted in Stanford University's dorms. They are Larry Page and Sergey Brin. They came up with ways to find information on the Internet and decided to abandon their studies and commercialize their ideas. In September 1998, Brin successfully got his first investment from a Stanford alumnus (Sun's co - founder Andy Bechtolsheim): $100,000. Relying on this $100,000, in a friend's garage, Brin and Page started Google's journey.

Born in Moscow, Google founder Sergey Brin is an honorary graduate of the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Computer Science. He then enrolled in the computer science major at Stanford University. He dropped out of the doctoral class of the Computer Research Institute and worked hard to develop Google. Sergey Brin’s father, Michael Brin, was a mathematician who worked in the former Soviet Union’s planning committee and immigrated to the United States in 1979. Their family was immigrated because of the pre-Soviet discrimination against Jews. Michael said: "I left the former Soviet Union for my own reasons and then considered Sergei's future. At that time, I did not consider Sergei to become an industrial giant. I just hope that he can get a Ph.D. Eventually become a useful person to the society, of course, it is better to become a professor like me.” But Sergey did not follow the planning development that his father set for him. He chose to take a break from studying at Stanford University. Together with Larry Page, he created the well-known Internet search engine Google."

Larry Page graduated from Ann Arbor University in Michigan with a Bachelor of Science degree. Larry Page, who was a professor of computer science, started using computers in 1979. He temporarily took a doctoral class from the Stanford University Computer Research Institute and worked with his friend Brin to run Google.

In September 1998, 25-year-old Page and 24-year-old Brin decided to start a partnership. The only service provided by the company was the search engine. The two of them successfully got their first investment from Stanford alumnus and Cisco's current vice president, Bertolsheim, without knowing the business plan: $100,000. Their search engine, Google, was born out of BackRub, which was born in January 1996. The latter was originally a subject experiment by Page and Brin. One day, they were surprised to find that thousands of people use the BackRub system that only a few instructors knew. The two were eager to sell BackRub, but at the time the major portals were very indifferent to the technology, and Page and Brin decided to do it themselves. So, in September 1998, Google was born in a garage. At the beginning of the company, in addition to Page and Brin, there was only one employee, Craig Silverstone, who was already the technical director of Google.

Although Brin has not yet completed his doctoral studies, he is very inclined to recruit people with doctoral degrees. Among Google’s 2,000 employees, there are more than 100 people with doctoral degrees. In addition to the best technology and the brightest employees, Brin also asked the company to have an idea that is ahead of the times. He has an unwritten rule for Google employees: Engineers must spend a quarter of their time thinking about great ideas, even if they can be detrimental to the company's financial prospects. To encourage innovation, Brin allowed employees to spend 20% hours on any job they are interested in, but the results must be sold to the company. The annual employee innovation technology competition is held once a year, and the prize is 10,000 US dollars in cash.
