Dropbox Idea invented on a bus.

In July 2018, the BBC’s weekly The Boss series profiled a different business leader from around the world. They spoke to DREW HOUSTON, founder and chief executive of US cloud storage company Dropbox.

Back in 2007,  the 24-year-old was desperate to secure funding to get his idea for a cloud storage business up and running. But his backer would only agree if he got a business partner on board, because they felt that new companies are far more likely to succeed if they have more than one founder – meaning more than one person to make decisions and cope with the workload.

Drew is current worth more than US$3bn, so I guess his idea and the partnership were worth the angst of partnering with someone he never knew!
