Amozon.com and the kindle

By: Ian Yencha

History

Jeff Bezos started Amozon.com. He saw that more and more people were using the internet and he saw a future in it. Bezos choose books as their product because it was almost a universal product. He decided when looking for home in seattle the house needed a garage, many of his entrepreneurial heroes started there business in a garage, so he would to.

Progression

When Amazon first launched people started ordering immediately. Soon they already had over 2,200 customers. However, with the cost of the employees and maintaining the facility the company soon became in debt and Jeff Bezos was broke. Then,an article was posted about Amazon.com. They received funding from an unknown donor and were able to buy a warehouse.Amazon went through a lot more slumps like this. Finally, we reach today's Amazon which doesn't just sell books it sells almost everything from instant videos to silly string. In my opinion makes it a lot better then when it started.

Impact

With Amazon started to use the internet more. But,that wasn’t all Amazon also makes generous donations in communities where their employees live. For instance they helped a little league baseball team and donated tons of kindles to a school. Without Amazon we’d be going to bookstores more often and department stores.

Specific Person

As I said before Jeff Bezos Started Amazon.com. When he was a boy the only thing he wanted to be was an Astronaut. He kept his grades up so he could go to astronaut school, knowing that the school only accepted the best. However, that soon changed, his first job was at mcdonald's where he was a chef and learned a lot of things. FInally he realized that being an astronaut was not for him and decided to use his talent of technology and create a business.
