At our 11th Founder Showcase event, keynote speaker, Aaron Levie, Founder and CEO of Box, provided guests with an insightful look at the future and consumerization of enterprise, the endless possibilities surrounding disruption in the mobile marketplace, and how Box has the potential to become a monolith in the cloud space. In this talk Levie also explains how he approaches the marketplace, and finds it valuable to think about the core of your business through the lens of a b2c model. Levie believes strongly in keeping the end user at the core of any business, as they are ultimately the deciding factor of any company’s success. 

Aaron views end-user virality as a distribution model and starting point that was critical for Box’s ability to compete with larger companies. That along with a strong, focused team are key tenants that helped drive Box to becoming one of the most successful, fastest growing companies in Silicon Valley.

To hear more from Aaron Levie and his thoughts for both the future of Box and the enterprise software market, watch the interview with Levie and Michael Copeland below;
