Founded by: Larry Page and Sergey Brin on October 2, 2015
CEO: Larry Page
Product: Conglomerate (Google parent company)
Employees: 72,053
Headquarters: Mountain View, California
Market Cap: $784.2 billion AND GROWING
Growth in the last ten years: 411%

The two co-founders of Google eventually ended up founding Alphabet, Inc, and chose to launch a higher-up umbrella conglomerate to take some of the pressure off of Google – which was in control of a number of subsidiaries until they were passed up to the new parent company. The massive restructuring will certainly go down in corporate history.
