While studying for his BSc, he was a member of the 1993 Maize & Blue Solar Car Team and has since gone on to become an investor in electric car manufacturer Tesla Motors.
Larry Page was born to Carl Page and Gloria in Michigan. Both his parents were computer science professors. He was raised without religion.
His childhood home was full of computers and science magazines, and that increased his fascination for technology at an early age. He was also interested in business and innovation, and by the age of 12 he realized that he wanted to start a company.
He graduated from East Lansing High School in 1991 and pursued a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering from the University of Michigan. Later, he enrolled for his Master of Science in computer science from Stanford University.
1999 – Technical Excellence Award.
2000 – Webby Award & A People’s Voice Award.
In 2002, Page and Brin were named in the MIT Technology Review TR100 for being among the top 100 innovators in the world under the age of 35.
The World Economic Forum named Page as a Global Leader for Tomorrow in 2002.
Page and Brin received the prestigious Marconi Foundation Prize (2004) which is given to honour significant contributions in science and technology. They were also elected Fellow of the Marconi Foundation at Columbia University.
When age of Larry Page was just 2 he started going to school. He went to Okemos Montessori School from 1975-1979 to attain early formal education.
Later, he went on to complete his higher education from East Lancing High School in 1991.
He then did his graduation in computer science from University of Michigan where he made an Inkjet printer using Lego. Further, he did his PHD in the same branch from Stanford University. He was a studious and a very hard working child since his school days. He was the leader of all the technical teams during college days.
In early 1990s when Larry Page was doing his doctorate in Stanford University, he met Sergery Brin. They didn’t become friends instantly. However, while working on dorm project they struck a chord and became friends. While working on this dorm project both Page and Brin developed an initial version of Google that was capable of ranking the pages on the basis of their popularity. Back then, they called it BackRub as the ranking of the page was based on backlinks. They operated this for the next few months on Stanford University’s official server. Later, both of them realized that this page rank mechanism can be further advanced to a search engine which will be superior to any other search engines. In the year 1998, they changed the name of BackRub to Google which is a misspelling of the mathematical term, googol meaning ‘a huge number.’ Ever since then Larry Page company name is Google. Before Google actually came into existence it received an investment of US $ 100,000 from Sun Microsystem’s co-founder. That’s how was Google started. There has been no company who has displayed such an exponential growth in a short span. Google went public in 2004. This made both the founder billionaires. In 2014, the stock price of Google’s share rose by 56%. Despite that Larry Page salary was a minor $1 in 2014. He has been receiving that salary since 2004. This trend of single digit salary was started by Steve Jobs in 1997. Larry Page shares in Google are worth $20 billion that makes him a shareholder of 16% of shares. Google has become one of the most efficient search engine and is ranking the most popular websites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and just every website based on their performance.

Now, we are selling over 5 million songs a day now. Isn't that unbelievable? That's 58 songs every second of every minute of every hour of every day.
It takes these very simple-minded instructions - 'Go fetch a number, add it to this number, put the result there, perceive if it's greater than this other number' - but executes them at a rate of, let's say, 1,000,000 per second. At 1,000,000 per second, the results appear to be magic.
Each year has been so robust with problems and successes and learning experiences and human experienes that a year is a lifetime at Apple. So this has been ten lifetimes.
The reason we wouldn't make a seven-inch tablet isn't because we don't want to hit a price point, it's because we don't think you can make a great tablet with a seven-inch screen.
The manual for WordStar, the most popular word-processing program, is 400 pages thick. To write a novel, you have to read a novel - one that reads like a mystery to most people. They're not going to learn slash q-z any more than they're going to learn Morse code. That is what Macintosh is all about.
