Back in Time!
Larry Page and Sergey Brin commenced working on Google in 1996 while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University alongside one more unofficial “third founder” who left before it became an official entity. And today, it is the most used and reliable site in the world.
Later, after years of effort and hard work, in 2015 the pair founded holing firm Alphabet to manage both Google and its several subsidiaries namely Waymo, DeepMind, Sidewalk Labs, and more. And it was then that Sergey Brin became the chairman of the newly founded portfolio company and Page became its CEO.
And then came the moment that Page named Sundar Pichai to take over as Google’s CEO.
According to Hugh Langley, Business Insider, in 2019, the two co-founders announced their intention to step back from Alphabet and named Sundar Pichai CEO. The CEO always consults with the cofounders on a regular basis, although they have adopted a non-interventionist approach.
In the past, Page and Brin took out $1 wages during their time at Google. In addition to everything else, spending a fortune on many things, they also conducted a $40 million round of investment in Elon Musk’s Tesla in 2006.
