Garages are Successful in More Ways Than One

Posted on May 9th, 2019

We love a good success story. We love it even more when the success began in a garage. Check out all these people who started their dream, career, or simple idea in their garage.

Steve Jobs and Apple

With a minimal budget and not much more than an idea, Steve Jobs and his two partners Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne started Apple—the company is known for sleek cell phones, computers, tablets, and more—in the childhood home garage of Jobs. That’s right, the modern-day Apple technology has garage roots!

Jeff Bezos and Amazon

The 1990s was a time familiar with garages.
The apparatus, by that time, had been around for just about 70 years. The large distributing selling, Amazon began when founder Jeff Bezos was selling books out of his own garage. What started as just a book-based company became one of the most successful companies in the United States and for the first time, cracked the top ten successful companies of the world, according to
Fortune 500 .


Larry Page and Sergey Brin and Google

If you have a question, whether it be random or important, where do you go? Google! The two co-founders rented three rooms along with a garage when they began to start a new search engine. As Google turns 21 this September, we look to how they started in a garage and that garage now serves as a historical landmark .
