Jeff Bezos founded Amazon.com in 1994. Amazon’s mission is to be Earth's most customer-centric company. Amazon offers low prices and fast delivery on millions of items, provides thousands of movies and TV shows through Prime Video, designs and builds the bestselling Kindle, Fire and Echo devices and Alexa voice recognition service, and empowers companies and governments in over 190 countries around the world with the leading cloud computing infrastructure through Amazon Web Services.


Bezos is also the founder of aerospace company Blue Origin, which is working to lower the cost and increase the safety of spaceflight, and he is owner of the Washington Post.


In 2018, he founded the Bezos Day One Fund, which focuses on funding non-profits that help homeless families, and on creating a network of tier-one preschools in low-income communities.


Bezos graduated summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa in electrical engineering and computer science from Princeton University in 1986, and was named TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year in 1999.
