|Personal Fact of George Eastman|
George Eastman was an inventor, an entrepreneur and a philanthropist all rolled into one. He was the founder of Eastman Kodak Company, which revolutionized the concept of photography. It was his invention of roll films and Kodak camera, which simplified the art of taking pictures and popularized it among the masses. What was unique about him was that unlike many other inventors he also had a shrewd sense of business.
By mass producing his inventions and constantly upgrading his products, he not only made millions of dollars, but was also able to bring photography within easy reach of the common people. At the same time, he used a razor and blade strategy; he sold his cameras at a very low profit, but maintained a large margin in films, chemicals and papers.
However, he also had a large heart and unlike many other industrialists, he was a caring employer. In fact, Eastman Kodak was the first American company, which offered shares of profit to its workers. Himself a school dropout, he also donated millions of dollars to different educational institutes and healthcare units.
