Cofounder And Board Member, Alphabet


Larry Page, the pioneering American computer scientist and entrepreneur, co-founded Google alongside Sergey Brin in 1998, revolutionizing the way people access information on the internet. Born in East Lansing, Michigan, Page played a pivotal role in shaping Google's success.

Page's notable contributions include co-inventing Google's PageRank algorithm, which powers the search engine, and serving as CEO during critical periods of Google's growth. Despite stepping down as CEO of Alphabet, Google's parent company, in 2019, Page remains a key figure as a board member and controlling shareholder.

Passionate about clean energy, Page advocates for sustainability, implementing innovative solutions like fuel cells and geothermal energy at his Palo Alto home.

Throughout Google's evolution, Page's leadership and vision were instrumental in its expansion beyond internet searches. Under his stewardship, Google made landmark acquisitions, including YouTube in 2006, and underwent restructuring to form Alphabet Inc. in 2015, with Page assuming the role of CEO.

Page's legacy as a tech visionary and advocate for innovation continues to shape the digital landscape, inspiring future generations of entrepreneurs and engineers.
