Amazon was founded in 1994 with the mission to be the Earth’s most customer-centric company. In 2000, Amazon launched Marketplace, enabling third-party small businesses and entrepreneurs to sell on Amazon’s websites right alongside products sold by Amazon. In 2005, Amazon launched Prime — which is now a physical-digital hybrid subscription service offering fast, free shipping and digital content. In 2006, Amazon Web Services launched, which provides on-demand cloud computing to developers and public and private organizations of all sizes. These are just a few of the services pioneered by Amazon. Today, Amazon serves the following primary customer sets: consumers, sellers, developers, enterprises, content creators, advertisers, and employees.
