The Amazon Juggernaut

Amazon.com was founded in 1995 by Jeff Bezos and has been led by the same individual ever since. The company started out selling books strictly online, through Amazon.com, and it eventually expanded to other items. The company grew out of the U.S. states to eventually international. Over the years, Amazon revolutionized the e-commerce industry, essentially proving that retail companies can operate online.
