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.
