Jeff is the founder of Amazon, the largest e-commerce company in the world. Kuiper Systems LLC, also referred to as Project Kuiper, was founded in 2019 as a subsidiary of Amazon, with the aim of deploying large satellite internet packages to the Earth’s orbit to provide broadband internet.
In the race for global internet supremacy, Jeff’s Project Kuiper recently launched 2 prototype satellites into the Earth’s orbit to test the necessary technology for future deployments.
