Entrepreneur Interview: Box.net

This podcast from Standford’s eCorner is a talk by a founder of Box.net. very interesting. Some highlights:

  • To dropout or not? How he decided.
  • Box.net isn’t his first startup, he had a lot of bad ideas first. He shares them in a way that helps you think about generating lots of ideas and evaluating their merit.
  • Box.net has used the Freemium business model for quite some time, to great effect.
  • Their business model has evolved a great deal over time, and he shares the inside debates on those changes. VERY insightful.
  • He started this business with friends and discusses the pros and cons (mostly pros if done right) of doing so.
