Page has avoided public appearances since Sundar Pichai became Google's CEO, including Alphabet's 2019 shareholders meeting -- much to investors' chagrin.
Page is a clean energy advocate; his Palo Alto home uses fuel cells and geothermal energy.
Larry Page stepped down as CEO of Alphabet, the parent company of Google, in 2019 but remains a board member and a controlling shareholder.
He cofounded Google in 1998 with fellow Stanford Ph.D. student Sergey Brin.
With Brin, Page invented Google's PageRank algorithm, which powers the search engine.
Page was CEO until 2001, when Eric Schmidt took over, and then from 2011 until 2015, when he became CEO of Google's new parent firm Alphabet.
He is a founding investor in space exploration company Planetary Resources and is also funding "flying car" startups Kitty Hawk and Opener.
