According to American business magazine Forbes, we can see the list of top richest persons in the world. They become a top listed billionaire for their successful business.
1. Jeff Bezos (Net worth: $112 billion)
Jeff Bezos is the founder and CEO of Amazon.com and he is the owner of The Washington Post. His successful business strategy has made him one of the top richest people in the world. He is an American entrepreneur.
In 1994, Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in a garage in Seattle, after his retirement from hedge funds giant DE Shaw. In fact, he originally introduced the idea of an online bookstore to his former manager, David E. Shaw (a rumor that Shaw himself would have confirmed) that he was not interested.
Although Amazon.com has started selling books, it has since become a one-stop shop for everything under the sun and perhaps even the largest retailer in the world. In any case, it is difficult to question their self-description as a “company with the greatest customer care for the Earth”. The trend of continued diversification is reflected in some of its recent unanticipated improvements, including the acquisition of Whole Foods in 2017 and the launch of its own over-the-counter medications in February 2018.
Bezos became public with Amazon in 1997 and has since become the first man since Bill Gates in 1999 to have earned more than $ 100 billion in net worth. Other Bezos projects include aerospace company Blue Origin, the Washington Post (which he bought in 2013) and the 10,000-year-old watch, also known as Long Now.
