Back before Google owned almost everything on the internet, in 2000, they were building the base of their Mountain View operation. Their venture capitalist backers decided that they needed "adult supervision". John Doerr came in and arranged a number of meetings for Google's co-founders Larry Page and Serge Brin. The goal? Google's new CEO. The pair met with Intel's Andry Grove, Amazon's Jeff Bezos, and others. Page and Brin turned all of these guys down. Why? Because they had one person they wanted to lead their new company, Steve Jobs.
