Net Worth Details: Career and Google's History
Sergey met Larry Page during an orientation for new students at Stanford. They initially disagreed on most subjects but after spending some time together, the two became "intellectual soul-mates and close friends".
Combining their idea, the two began working on their dormitory as a search engine development center. The two started working on HTML, and due to increase in server requirement, they released the initial version of Google on 1996 in the Stanford website.
Their original name for the engine was "BackRub" but later settled on "Google", a misspelling of "Googol". The domain name for Google was registered on September 15, 1997 and the company was incorporated on September 4, 1998. Jeff Bezos was also one of the early investors in Google.
Parent Company Alphabet:
Alphabet Inc. was found on October 2, 2015. It is a multinational conglomerate holding Google and all of it's former subsidiaries. It is the world's 5th largest technological company by revenue and is one of the most valuable companies in the world.
Alphabet's market standing in 2018 was as follows:
|Operating Income||$26.32 billion|
|Net Income||$30.74 billion|
|Total Assets||$232.8 billion|
|Total Equity||$177.6 billion|
|No. Of Employees||98,771|
Sergey has assumed the role of president and Larry, the CEO. According to Larry, Alphabet is,
mostly a collection of companies. The largest of which, of course, is Google. This newer Google is a bit slimmed down, with the companies that are pretty far afield of our main internet products contained in Alphabet instead. Fundamentally, we believe this allows us more management scale, as we can run things independently that aren't very related.
The establishment of Alphabet was prompted by a desire to make the Google experience "cleaner and more accountable" while also allowing greater control and freedom to group companies that operate in sectors other than internet service.

The outside includes a fitness pool, a tennis court and a spa. The mansion also has a 4,000-bottle wine cellar, movie theater, ballroom, formal dining room, dining terrace and three bars.
He owns a massive 600-foot yacht "Dragonfly" that costs $80 million. Along with his co-founder, he has also purchased 3 private jets; a Boeing 767-200 from Qantas for $15 million and $10 million worth of modifications.

He is also a donor to the democratic party, having donated $5000 for Barack Obama's campaign and $30,800 to the Democratic National Committee.
