Google celebrated its 11th birthday over the weekend, and to honor the occasion, the folks at The Next Web dug up their first press release. The headline of the release, from June 7, 1999, reads: “Google Receives $25 Million in Equity Funding.”

The release included a statement from Google CEO and co-founder Larry Page, “We are delighted to have venture capitalists of this caliber help us build the company…We plan to aggressively grow the company and the technology so we can continue to provide the best search experience on the web.” And aggressively grow they did.
