Google was willing to sell the company for under $1 million in 1999 to a company called Excite. Excite turned down the offer!
The story goes: In 1999, Vinod Khosla, the founder of Khosla Ventures (and eventual partner at Kleiner Perkins) got Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin to agree to sell the company to Excite for $1 million.  Excite’s George Bell wasn’t interested.
