What Bezos is doing after Amazon

Jeff Bezos is world famous for founding Amazon. However, he has received countless bad reviews about how his corporation treats its employees. This led to a sparring between Bezos and US senators. It wasn’t until February 2021 that Bezos announced he was stepping down as Amazon CEO. However, he did mention that he would be the executive chairman of the board. The title of CEO went to Andy Jassi, who was the senior vice president of Amazon Web Services and was personally selected by Bezos.

What is Bezos going to do now?

In a memo to staff, Bezos said he plans to return to his “inventor” role and focus on his other projects, such as the Day 1 Fund, the Bezos Earth Fund, Blue Origin, The Washington Post, and “other hobbies.”

Blue Origins is one of Bezos’ biggest projects. Rivaling other billionaires like Elon Musk, Blue Origin also plans to go into space and colonize it for human life. The ambitious project Bezos has focused on the most since leaving Amazon.

In July 2021, Jeff Bezos launched the NS-16 mission with his half-brother Mark, astronaut Wally Funk, and space tourist Oliver Damen. This allowed his spacecraft to move in a suborbital orbit around the Earth. Suborbitality allows them to go into outer space, and the trajectory allows them to intersect with Earth’s gravity or atmosphere. But, this does not allow them to revolve around the Earth in one revolution. Since then, six more missions have been completed and about 20 people have risen. Among them is the famous Star Trek actor William Shatner. Shatner then became the oldest person to go into space at the age of 90. The last mission took place on 4 August.

However, Blue Origins ran into problems and sued the US federal government over the failed bid. They claimed that NASA had an incorrect evaluation of the proposal. However, the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) sided with NASA after an investigation. The lawsuit has led to delays in NASA’s own moon landing operation called the Artemis program.

The International Space Station (ISS) will be decommissioned in 2030. This led to the need for replacement. NASA reported it, and Blue Origin and Sierra Space came up with an orbital reef. More recently, the proposed space station received positive feedback from NASA, allowing it to move on to the next phase of design.

Altos Labs

Altos Labs was founded in September 2021. It was created by Jeff Bezos and world famous businessman and physicist Yuri Milner. The goal of Altos Labs was to become a biotechnology company that focused on manipulating cells to prolong human life. It went public in January 2022 with a massive $3 billion net worth. The company’s CEO is Hal Barron, a scientist and drug developer who quit his job to join Altos Labs.

Since then Altos Lab has been quiet. Most likely working hard.


Just last week, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) revealed registration from Amazon, which requires the FTC to limit its investigation into Amazon’s business practices. The investigation has so-called civil investigative requirements (CID). They work in a similar way to a subpoena. The FTC is also collecting testimony over three days regarding Amazon Prime subscriptions, Amazon Prime cancellations, and other topics.

If you’re a big geek, you’ve probably heard that Amazon has its own Lord of the Rings television series, which debuted in early September 2022. Many have already criticized the series for many reasons, but some feared that this is just another way to make money. But Jeff Bezos is a big fan of science fiction and fantasy. Bezos himself vouched for The Lord of the Rings during negotiations in 2017.

Personal life

Although Jeff Bezos divorced his wife in 2019, Bezos was able to keep most of his money. Since then, he has had a girlfriend named Lauren Sanchez. They supposedly started dating despite the fact that both were married. Despite rumors and scandals surrounding his relationship, he and Sanchez seem to be happy and travel all over the world.


Jeff Bezos has been a busy man since stepping down as Amazon CEO. However, he still has a large stake in the company. His other project, Blue Origin, is also working more and more on possible space colonization. Not to mention his work with Altos Labs and human longevity. No matter how you feel about Bezos, he is definitely busy.
