Vancouver Startups Wealth News : Amazon Just Became the Second Company to Reach $1 Trillion. Here's How Much Jeff Bezos Is Worth Now
Just a few weeks after Apple became the world’s $1 trillion company, Amazon became the second to reach the historic marker: On Tuesday, as Amazon stock inched higher, the company’s market capitalization briefly rose over $1 trillion.
Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO — who is already the world’s richest man — saw his personal fortune rise on Tuesday as well.
At the close of the stock market on Friday, Jeff Bezos’s net worth was estimated at $166 billion by the other major billionaire wealth tracker, the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Bezos’s fortune was measured at just under $100 billion at the start of 2018, so he is theoretically up more than $66 billion in unrealized gains so far this year.
Bezos is also nearly $70 billion richer than the second wealthiest person on the planet, Bill Gates — whose net worth has been around $98 billion lately.
Can anyone invest in startups?
Anyone Can Invest in a Startup, But Should You? ... Now, anyone can, although the regulations do come with some limits: individuals with income below $100,000 can invest up to $2,000, or 5% of their annual income, while investors making between $100,000 and $200,000 may invest up to 10% of their annual income.
Venture capital is an ideal financing structure for startups that need capital to scale and will likely spend a significant amount of time in the red to build their business into an extraordinarily profitable company. Big name companies like Amazon, Facebook, and Google were once venture-backed startups.
Unlike car dealerships and airlines – companies with valuable physical assets and more predictable cash flows – startups typically have little collateral to offer against a traditional loan. Therefore, if an investor were to issue a loan to a startup, there’s no way to guarantee that the investors could recoup the amount they’ve lent out if the startup were to fail.
By raising venture capital rather than taking out a loan, startups can raise money that they are under no obligation to repay. However, the potential cost of accepting that money is higher – while traditional loans have fixed interest rates, startup equity investors are buying a percentage of the company from the founders. This means that the founders are giving investors rights to a percentage of the company profits in perpetuity, which could amount to a lot of money.
