WE START:

Welcome to another post. Google was born in 1997, founded by entrepreneurs Larry Page (22 years old) and Sergei Brin (21 years old), who met at Stanford University in 1995. Sergei gave him a tour of the fields. The two of them did not know that together they would make the most revolutionary invention in the history of the internet, and today you will see the stages it has had since its creation. Without further ado, let's go!
