With a fortune largely tied to his 78.9 million shares of Amazon, the net worth of Jeff Bezos continues to be on the rise.

Just days ago, #Amazon shares reached all-time highs after the company’s ambitious acquisition of #wholefoods. This puts Bezos just $4 billion away from displacing #BillGates as the world’s number one billionaire – and if the stock continues upwards, he could take the title any day.

ALL STREAMS LEAD TO AMAZON

Jeff Bezos makes investments and acquisitions through multiple vehicles:

Amazon makes acquisitions and investments that relate to the company’s core #business and #future ambitions. This includes acquisitions of Whole Foods ($13.7 billion in 2017), Zappos.com ($1.2 billion in 2009), Twitch.tv ($970 million in 2014), and Kiva Systems ($780 million in 2012). It also includes investments in everything form failed dot-com company Kozmo.com (2000) to #Twilio, which successfully IPO’d in 2016.

Bezos Expeditions manages Jeff Bezos’ venture capital investments. Over the years, this venture arm has put money into Twitter, Domo, Juno Therapeutics, Workday, General Fusion, Rethink Robotics, Business Insider, MakerBot, and Stack Overflow. More recent investments include GRAIL, a startup that recently raised over $900 million to cure cancer before it happens, as well as EverFi, an edtech #startup.

#JeffBezos also invests money on a personal level. He was an angel investor in #Google in 1998, and has also put money in #Uber and #Airbnb. (Note: these last two companies are listed on the Bezos Expeditions website, but on Crunchbase they are listed as personal #investments.) Nash Holdings LLC is the private company owned by Bezos that bought The Washington Post for $250 million.

Before Twilio, adding a voice, video, or text-chat feature to an app was difficult. Jeff Lawson, the founding CTO of StubHub, wondered why a developer wasn't able to add telephΒ­ony and messaging capabilities to an app. So, in 2008, the three started Twilio, a San Francisco-based business-to-business cloud platform that allows sexier comΒ­panies like Uber, WhatsApp, and Airbnb to do just that. By making a low-cost utility available to some of Silicon Valley's hottest startups, Twilio became a hot startup itself and attracted $240 million from an all-star cast of individual investors. Valued at $1 billion before its June initial public offering (and now about thrice that), Twilio was one of the few unicorns to go public in 2016. (πŸ“Έ: @ryaneyoung) #IPO #Twilio #Founder

On 2 May 2016, Ladon (a crowd sourced platform which provides remote translation services to immigrants) clinched the FIRST PRIZE at the #UCBerkeley #SocialEntrepreneurship #ChallengeLab and sponsored by #Twilio.
Looking back, our journey for the past few months of building the product from scratch was not an easy one. We brainstormed, built a minimum viable product and reached out to many organizations for help and mentorship including the #ClintonGlobalInitiativeUniversity Resolution Project which we won and received funding and mentorship.
Ladon would like to extend a big thank you to our #ChallengeLab mentors, Mr Ken Sandy, David Law and Carlos, for providing us with great resources and for guiding us along our journey. Without you, #Ladon couldn't have gone this far. .
