1. Larry Page and Sergey Brin are the Founders

Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded Google in 1998. At that time, they were both students at Stanford University who were studying for a degree. It started as a research project in 1996. They were theorizing about a better way for search engines to rank results. Traditionally, this was done depending on how many times a search for a term had taken place. Instead, Page and Brin decided that a better system would be to rank the relevance of a website by the number of pages and whether these pages linked back to the original site. The technology they created to list search results in this way was called PageRank, and this is still a term that is used today. It became a privately held company on September 4, 1998. Sergey Brin and Larry Page continue to own around 16% of the shares in this company.
