It might be a little difficult to recall life without web search giant Google, Inc., but the Mountain View, Calif.-based corporation popped up on the tech scene just 14 years ago—and hasn’t looked back. Since founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin met at Stanford University in 1995 to filing for incorporation as Google, Inc. (initially called BackRub) to claim its first investment of $100,000 in 1998, the robust brand has expanded to include more than 70 offices in over 40 countries around the globe. While September 4, 1998 marks the day Google filed the incorporation papers, in recent years, Sept. 27 is the day Google has chosen to celebrate its inception. In honor of the popular search engine’s 14th birthday, BlackEnterprise.com has compiled a list of Google’s most historic moments. –Janel Martinez
