In an attempt to help its US-based employees quit their jobs and establish their own businesses, Amazon has announced to fund employees with up to $10,000 for their delivery start-ups along with three months of existing salaries.

In June 2018, the company announced that it is encouraging its employees to apply to start their own small businesses, delivering Prime packages in Amazon-branded vans and uniforms.

The company said that although thousands of employees expressed interest in the programme, most of them said they could not afford the start-up money they needed to get the businesses off the ground.

According to the company, ever since it started the delivery service, there have been more than 200 independent contractors who signed up to handle the deliveries. Between them, they have hired thousands of local drivers to deliver the packages.
