Buddhism was founded in approximately 460 B.C. It was founded by a prince named Siddhartha Gautama who was born in Kapilavastu in 480 B.C. He was isolated in luxury and kept ignorant by his father of pain and suffering. Against his father's wishes, Siddhartha left his kingdom and searched for the 4 Noble Truths about suffering in 460 BC.

He then sat and fasted under a sacred fig tree, called the Bodhi tree (the tree of awakening) for 49 days. Finally, he understood life and suffering and he became known as the Buddha or "the enlightened one." He began to teach others. The related link below shows the timeline of Buddhism.

Perhaps you mean when was Buddhism founded? Buddha was born in 563 B.C. so it was sometime after that, during his lifetime, since he founded Buddhism.
