Sergey Mikhaylovich Brin is an American computer scientist and internet entrepreneur who, with Larry Page, co-founded Google, one of the most profitable Internet companies. As of June 2014, his personal wealth was estimated to be US$ 30 billion. Together, Brin and Page own about 16 percent of the company.

Brin emigrated to the United States with his family from the Soviet Union at the age of six. He earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland, following in his father's and grandfather's footsteps by studying mathematics, as well as computer science. After graduation, he moved to Stanford University to acquire a PhD in computer science. There he met Larry Page, with whom he later became friends. They crammed their dormitory room with inexpensive computers and applied Brin's data mining system to build a superior search engine. The program became popular at Stanford and they suspended their PhD studies to start up Google in a rented garage.

The Economist newspaper referred to Brin as an "Enlightenment Man", and someone who believes that "knowledge is always good, and certainly always better than ignorance", a philosophy that is summed up by Google's motto "Organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful" and "Don't be evil".
