Jerry Yang and David Filo created a website which is called Yahoo. Both made Yahoo at Sanford University which was made in April 1994. Both Jerry and David made Yahoo because they wanted to change how the internet let You search up facts and also the wanted it to be a navigation guide to people.

When it First Started.

In the start of making Yahoo they had 2 million dollars in their hands but they needed to hire people and start getting the hang of working and owning a business. What happened to them next is that now they have the people and they also have to upgrade the important stuff like the computers. In April 12, 1996 they became public also with the help of investors. Now Yahoo is a successful company but they have to keep a very sharp on other companies and now a internet search tool. Also now they have business experience and know how to run things.
