Larry Page and Sergey Brin
In September 1998, the 'BackRub' project, now renamed as ‘Google’. Larry and Sergey decide that the BackRub search engine needs a new name. After some brainstorming, they go with Google—a play on the word “googol,” a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. 'Google' was officially incorporated as a company. Eric Schmidt was appointed as the CEO in 2001 while Page and Brin became the presidents of products and technology, respectively.
During his PhD at Stanford, Page met fellow researcher Sergey Brin while working on a research project in 1995. By 1996 they had built a search engine - initially called ‘BackRub’. It was operated on Stanford servers for many months.
Page later on enrolled for his Master of Science in computer science from Stanford University.
