Jeff Bezos began his professional career in the hedge fund business in the 1990s, but he left a comfortable position to create his firm, which struggled to turn a profit for years after it was founded.

At Fitel, a financial telecommunications startup, he was tasked with the duty of building an international trading network, which he completed within a year. Following that, Bezos was elevated to the position of head of development, and then to the position of director of customer service.

Bezos had hoped to start an online store by the end of 1993. In the months before settling on Seattle, Bezos contemplated locating his company on a neighboring Indian reservation to avoid paying taxes. Amazon is the world’s largest online retailer. Website listings were alphabetized back then, which meant that a name starting with “A” would appear first in a search for a product or service by a customer.

As an additional point of clarification, he felt the name “Amazon,” which is taken from the world’s greatest river, was suitable for what he anticipated would be the world’s largest online bookstore. With the money he inherited from his parents, he made an estimated $300,000 investment in the online retailer Amazon.

Even though Amazon started as an online bookstore, founder Jeff Bezos had always planned to broaden the company’s services. Bezos went public with Amazon in an initial public offering (IPO) three years after the business was established (IPO).

After raising $54 million via the company’s 1997 public offering, Bezos put the money to use to finance an aggressive acquisition plan. In 2000, when the firm’s financial reserves had fallen to just $350 million, Bezos borrowed $2 billion from banks to keep the company afloat. Founded in 2002, Amazon Web Services collected data from weather channels and internet traffic to provide customers with better service.

Amazon’s rapid spending caused the business to go into financial difficulties in late 2002 when sales slowed to a crawl. In 2003, Amazon was able to turn a profit of $400 million after going through a period of financial turbulence. Amazon Kindle was launched by Jeff Bezos in November 2007.

According to a 2008 Time magazine story, Bezos wanted to create a device that would allow users to enter a “flow state,” similar to that experienced when playing video games. In 2013, Bezos was awarded a contract with the Central Intelligence Agency for $600 million for Amazon Web Services (CIA).

When Bezos sold little more than one million shares of his Amazon stock for $671 million in May 2016, he achieved the largest amount of money he has ever made through the selling of stock. When Bezos expanded recruitment at the company’s distribution centers a year later, he was able to hire an additional 130,000 people.

A few months later, he began selling shares to raise money for other businesses, including Blue Origin, which he founded. On February 1, 2018, Amazon reported its largest quarterly profit in company history, with $2 billion in earnings for the period.
