A company called Excite refused to buy Google for just $1 million in 1999

Talk about having regrets! This is definitely a decision they would like to have the chance to do over again. In 1999, Google's founders were willing to sell to Excite (a website similar to Yahoo) for just $1 million but Excite CEO George Bell rejected the offer. Larry Page and Sergey Brin then came back with an even better offer of just $750,000 but George rejected that too. Today, Google is approaching a total market capitalization of $1 trillion while Excite is a company you probably heard of for the first time right now.
