ProfileWith over 500 million users globally, Dropbox is best known as the pioneer and standard-bearer of file storage and sharing platforms. The freemium business model catapulted the company to the forefront of cloud-services in 2008 with the launch of its iconic file depository and collaboration platform, offering users 2 GB in free storage immediately with signup. For the professionals, Dropbox offered two tiers of paid subscriptions with expanded storage space and enhanced features. The company surpassed one million registered users after the first year.
In the years since its founding, Dropbox has seen the cloud storage industry grow rapidly with the likes of Amazon and Google joining the fray. CEO and co-founder Drew Houston started the company with Arash Ferdowski and together they have seen it grow into the industry-leader in workplace efficiency and collaboration with a valuation of over $10 billion and an annual revenue quickly speeding past the billion-dollar mark.
