1) INNOVATION

When did Amazon become profitable?

Amazon’s quarterly net profit

For a sense of scale, it took Amazon more than 14 years—58 quarters after its May 1997 initial public offering—to make, cumulatively, as much profit as it produced in the latest quarter alone. Keep in mind that Amazon consistently lost money for its first several years as a public company.

How much does Jeff Bezos make a day?

At the annual earnings rate Business Insider calculated — again, an estimation based on the change in his Forbes net worth year-over-year — Bezos has earned $6.54 billion a month, more than $1.5 billion a week, and more than $215 million a day in the last 12 months.

How long will Amazon last?

“Amazon will go bankrupt. If you look at large companies, their lifespans tend to be 30-plus years, not a hundred-plus years,” he said. Bezos went on to say that it was his job to delay that date by as long as possible. Amazon turned 25 years old today, so it is fast approaching Bezos’s 30-year benchmark.
