Jeff Bezos. L70

 Jeff Bezos is Amazon’s head and was born on January 12, 1964, New Mexico. Jeff Bezos was very successful, and most of us now use Amazon, not knowing Jeff Bezos. I actually buy most of what I want on Amazon.
Jeff Bezos showed an interest in how things work as a child. He moved to Miami and developed a love for computers. In high school, he started his first business, the Dream Institute, which was an educational summer camp. He pursued his interest in computers at Princeton, where he graduated in 1986 with a degree in computer science and electrical engineering. He later found work at several firms on Wall Street, and there met his wife, Mackenzie.
While Jeff Bezos’s career was very good, he chose to make a risky move into the world of e-commerce. Quit his job in 1994, and opened an online bookstore. He developed everything in his garage and a two-bedroom house, and eventually opened Amazon.com on July 16, 1995. They had a wonderful success and made it public in 1997.
Jeff Bezos became very rich, and became a philanthropist, and also managed to buy the Washington Post, in a $250 million deal.
