Google Inc. is an international cooperation based in the United States, that provides internet-related services and products, most notably- internet search, advertising technologies and cloud computing. Google net worth is currently estimated at $200 billion, making it one of the most valuable companies in the world.
The company was founded by Sergey Mikhaylovich Brin and Lawrence Page, an American computer scientists and entrepreneurs, who still own 16% of the shares of company. Although the founders’ fortunes do not come close to the Google net worth, one has to admit that their wealth is impressive. Sergey and Larry owns assets worth 20.3 million dollars each and both are ranked among the fifteen wealthiest people in the world. The two friends met while attending Stanford University and created Google as their research project in 1996. Although the internet search engines existed before, this one was different. While the traditional search networks determined the page’s relevance based on the number of times that the search term was used on the site, Google engine ranked pages judging their relevance based on the links between the various sites.
Google net worth started to grow soon after the company’s incorporation. This success encouraged its founders and newly joined members of the board not to stop with a web search engine and use the profits to make new acquisitions and develop new perspective partnerships. List of the products that Google offers today does not end with the search system, but goes further to include statistical, communication and publishing tools, advertising services, development resources and map-related product. Aside from these web-based products the company offers operating systems, desktop and mobile applications and hardware. Looking to the company’s recent development history one could safely bet that this is not the final list.
