Yesterday (27th September 2015) was the day that Google reached its 17th birthday.
Many of us cannot remember life before the search engine – what did we do before when we wanted to check the answer to an obscure question, or the year a film or album was released? We take it for granted that with just a few taps of the screen or keyboard, billions of facts are at our fingertips – but the company itself has changed so much in 17 years.
Google was incorporated as a company on 4th September 1998 after investor Andy Bechtolsheim wrote a cheque for $100,000. The domain name was registered a year before that and since then:
Google logo – changed recently and now “doodled” to celebrate different events.
Value of Google – in 1998, Microsoft was the biggest company in the world and was valued at more than $271m. Google is the 4th largest company now in terms of market value, at $345,849m.
The staff – began with employee number 1 Craig Silverstein. The company now employs more than 57,000 as of mid 2015.
The head office – used to be a garage in Menlo Park, California. The company now has 70 offices in more than 40 countries around the world, with its headquarters – the Googleplex – locate in Mountain View.
Google has achieved so much in a relatively short space of time – it makes you believe that anything is possible if you have the right idea and the right attitude!
