Google’s co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, have experienced a significant increase in their combined wealth, with more than $18 billion added to their fortunes. This surge in wealth can be attributed to the artificial intelligence (AI) frenzy and the recent unveiling of a revamped search engine by the company. As Google asserts its dominance in the competitive AI field, the stock prices of its parent company, Alphabet Inc., have also experienced substantial growth.
Larry Page, co-founder and former CEO of Google, witnessed his net worth increase by $9.4 billion in a week, reaching $106.9 billion. This surge in wealth represents his most significant weekly gain since February 2021. Page’s substantial wealth growth can be attributed to his involvement in the AI push at Google and his active engagement with the company in recent years.
Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, experienced a rise of $8.9 billion in his net worth, reaching $102.1 billion. Like Larry Page, Brin has been actively contributing to Google’s AI advancements and is more involved in the company than he has been in years. His wealth surge is also one of the largest weekly gains he has seen since February 2021.
