Founded on July 5, 1994, as an online book retailer, Amazon.com has expanded over the years to sell almost anything one can think of and is now one of the most valuable companies in the world. Despite the controversies it has been involved in, the company’s managed to build an immense customer base – and a nice fortune for Jeff Bezos, who has just regained his spot as the second-richest person on the planet. Twenty-three years after it all began, let’s take a look at how Amazon evolved into a multi-million-dollar business.
The Amazon.com Timeline illustrates important dates in the history of the giant, including acquisitions, successes, and other company milestones, as well as major product & service launches throughout the years. December 7, 2016, marks the day when Amazon Prime Air made its first successful drone delivery to an actual customer in the Cambridge area, UK. The drone used GPS to find its way and made it to the customer’s address within just 13 minutes from placing the order!
The Amazon chronology was created using the Office Timeline plug-in for PowerPoint and is free to copy, modify or distribute for personal or public use.
