Amazing Amazon Story – Jeff Bezos

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


After graduating with a degree in electrical engineering and computer science from Princeton, Jeff Bezos headed off to Wall Street, where he identified one of the biggest trend that the internet was the fastest-growing industry on the planet. With this, he has decided to quit his job and head to Seattle to found the online bookstore Amazon in 1995. The company expanded beyond books and now sells anything to anyone. This has made Jeff Bezos a very wealthy man which saw his fortune rose $13 billion in 2013 as shares in his online retailer Amazon soared 55%. In October he even bought the Washington Post for $250 million. The next month he sold 1 million shares of Amazon, less than 1% of the company, for about $260 million.

In December he announced that Amazon could be delivering its packages by drones within five years. We will certainly be seeing a lot more things coming from Amazon in the near future with Jeff continue to head it at the top.
