Bloomberg Game Changers – Amazon, Jeff Bezos
Jeff Bezos didn’t just invent online shopping; he almost single-handedly turned it into a 34 billion dollar enterprise. With the launch of Amazon.com in 1994, Bezos put online shopping on the map and Amazon.com has sold every product imaginable since the company’s inception. Amazon began as a bookstore, expanding into dozens of product categories and forcing the world’s biggest retailers to rethink their business models and ultimately changing the way people shop. An inventive risk-taker, Bezos has never shied away from challenges, investing huge amounts of capital in his ventures, often taking a hit before seeing profits soar. Bezos is ranked one of the richest men in the world.
