Jeff Bezos founded Amazon.com, Inc. in 1994 and launched it online in 1995 as Cadabra.comAmazon's initial business plan was unusual: the company did not expect a profit for four to five years. Its "slow" growth provoked stockholder complaints that the company was not reaching profitability fast enough. When the dot-com bubble burst, and many e-companies went out of business, Amazon persevered, and finally turned its first profit in the fourth quarter of 2001: $5 million or 1¢ per share, on revenues of more than $1 billion, but the modest profit was important in demonstrating the business model could be profitable. In 1999, Timemagazine named Bezos Person of the Year, recognizing the company's success in popularizing online shopping.
