Aaron Levie, CEO and co-founder, describes the decision to leave college to follow through on developing his company. Levie started after seeing his fellow students’ need for cost-effective, online storage. After launching Box from his dorm room, and finding initial success, Levie realized he would not only need greater funding, but would also have to leave school to fully capitalize on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
