Google's remarkable success story
 
Today in History: Google Opens First Bank Account; Files to Become California Corporation
On September 4, 1998 — 16 years ago today (Google is old enough to drive, thus Google driverless cars, haha) — Larry Page and Sergey Brin filed to incorporate Google in California and opened Google’s first bank account, so they could deposit a $100,000 check that Andy Bechtolsheim, co-founder of Sun, had written to “Google Inc.”

Just the previous month, August 1998 — after attempting for over a year to find a business interested in buying the google search algorithm for a reasonable price (like the $1.6 million suggested price that Larry and Sergey had offered to sell it to Excite) and after realizing just how their invention could change the world — Larry and Sergey decided they should start their own company. Dave Cheriton, a Stanford professor, had encouraged them to launch their own enterprise, and he wanted to help them get some initial funding. Professor Cheriton had co-founded a company with Andy Bechtolsheim, and Dave thought Andy would be willing to provide some funding. A meeting was arranged quickly with Andy on Professor Cheriton’s porch. At 8:00 A.M., Larry and Sergey gave a demo to Andy (Cheriton’s porch had an ethernet connection). Andy was very impressed; but he didn’t have much time to talk because he had to get to his office. So he quickly wrote out a $100,000 check to “Google Inc.” Sergey stated, “We don’t have a bank account yet.” Andy, racing off in his Porche, yelled back, “Deposit it when you get one.”

So today, September 4, Larry and Sergey opened a checking account so they could deposit Andy’s check and get the ball rolling.
