Whether you know him as the founder and CEO of Amazon or the man who offered to send Donald Trump on a vacation to space, Jeff Bezos has been a household name on the tech scene since the very beginning of the Web.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
In this interview taped in June 1997, you can watch a young Bezos open up about his decision to launch Amazon and discuss 90’s digital marketing strategies. The video also touches upon the future of the internet as well as how this “new technology” is going to change business and consumer dynamics.
While some of the statements Bezos makes in the interview might appear rather obvious nowadays, the lengedary entrepreneur was without a doubt ahead of his time and Amazon’s incredible success today makes this even more evident.
