Box, the online file sharing and content management service for businesses actually started as a college project. Childhood friends Dylan Smith and Aaron Levie worked around the clock to make their company Box live after only two months – which through a series of pivots has become a billion dollar company. In 2005 this duo decided to tackle the problem of file sharing amongst colleagues. By listening to their customers and maintaining a fluid approach, they have honed their product and its design to become a leader in the market. Co-founder and CFO, Dylan Smith, explains how he and his team developed the idea into a successful company.
