Amazon founder and Billionaire Jeff Bezos has just invested in Altos Labs, a startup company which is focusing on figuring out how to reverse the aging process.
According to MIT Tech Review, “The company was founded earlier this year and is poaching university scientists with salaries as high as $1 million and promises that they can pursue their own research on how cells age and how to reverse that process.”
While it is unclear as to just how much Bezos has invested in Altos Labs, the company has listed Bezos as an investor and Bezos’ net worth sits at around $201 billion thanks to his very successful company Amazon.
Altos Labs is reported to have currently raised $270 million.
Bezos resigned from Amazon in July and said he wanted to focus more on doing philanthropic work and following passion projects such his space company Blue Origin.
Billionaire and competitor to Bezos, Elon Musk, laughed at the idea and said, “And if it doesn’t work, he’s gonna sue death!”
