By

Thinking of starting your own company? Our CEO recently visited Stanford (just a few minutes from Box HQ) to speak to students about what it takes to deliver innovation in the enterprise, and to share lessons learned from his experiences as a co-founder of Box.

Don’t write your obituary too early.
