1 – Google
In September 1998, the makers of Google and then graduates of Stanford University, Larry Page and Sergey Brin developed the site in a garage owned by Susan Wojcicki. She leased her garage to the two for $1,700 to pay her mortgages, and for five months, the two spent their days in the garage working on now Google’s famous algorithm. Now, all of them, including Wojcicki, manage the biggest and most trafficked network on the internet. They moved out by the next year on what is now called ‘Googleplex’ and on the company’s 8th birthday, the two bought the garage (and the house) as part of its legacy.
