Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. The name Google was a play on the word “googol,” the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeros. Google Inc. was born in 1998 and is founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
As the leading search engine worldwide, Google eventually expanded their franchise by giving the world Google Chrome, Gmail, and Google among many others.
Their headquarters, called the Googleplex, is headquartered in Mountain View, California. Google has more than 70 offices in more than 40 countries around the globe.
