Time is a crazy thing. I love looking back on the naivety of our past and the predictions we made about the future.

This article talks about when “Google received $25 million in equity funding.”

And boy, in hindsight, is it remarkable.

To think, how far they have come as a company.

“We are delighted to have venture capitalists of this caliber help us build the company,” said Larry Page, CEO and co-founder of Google. “We plan to aggressively grow the company and the technology so we can continue to provide the best search experience on the web.”

How much they have changed the world. 

“Google should become the gold standard for search on the Internet,” said Michael Moritz. “Larry and Sergey’s company has the power to turn Internet users everywhere into devoted and life-long Googlers.”

So what is google (lol, 1999)

Google is dedicated to providing the best search experience on the web. Google has its own search destination site at google.com. Google also offers co-branded solutions for information content providers. Google was founded in September 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, building on three years of research as computer science Ph.D. candidates at Stanford University. Traffic has been growing at a rate of 50% per month since Google’s inception, fueled only by word of mouth. The Company’s name is derived from “Googol,” the name for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros, and reflects the immense amount of information available on the Internet. Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information, making it universally accessible and useful. Google is based in Palo Alto, California.
