@levie a few deep thoughts: 1) Your tweets are an inspiration. 2) When you were alone at the Box office and streamed yourself doing magic tricks was one of my favorite moments at Meerkat :) https://twitter.com/Nivo0o0/stat... 3) Where do you get the cloud socks? 🤔

@levie What do you do to prepare for the day to ensure maximum productivity?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@iamcuan Generally I wake up and read email in bed for about 30 minutes (bad habit, I know), but it allows me to knock out most key issues right away (p.s. iphone 6+ is super helpful). Then I head into work (sometimes have to Uber to get more work done in the car), and grab 2 cups of coffee when I arrive at the office. From there it's about usually 7-8 hours of meetings with various teams, after which I try and take a nap for ~20 minutes, grab dinner, and I'm back at it for another 4-5 hours.
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@levie @iamcuan Oh also, I keep a list of about 50-60 things that are ongoing topics/issues/challenges/tasks in the business that I need to resolve. They range from "email X customer" to "figure out next year's product roadmap".
Ronnie Rendel
Ronnie Rendel@ronnie86019246 · Yesod of Tevunah, New Era
@levie @iamcuan yeah, small detail. Kinda gives contect to the rest of the 8 + 4 hours of work. Can you give more details on what things are ongoing topics? It will be ineteresting to define issue granularity for a big enterprise saas ceo.

Hi Aaron, Fight On!! Hello from somebody also taking a break from USC! You started a company in a time where there wasn't a lot of startup advice floating around. Probably fewer mentors too. As an inexperienced and young founder, how did you learn the ropes? There are so many possible ways to go wrong when building a startup. Where there any "hacks" or things you did that you think helped you succeed in learning the ropes better than most founders? Thanks and congrats on the journey! Been following the Box journey. Keep up the hilarious tweets. Sydney Liu

Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@pmlonglamoureux Listening to our early customers even more earlier on -- we wavered a bit too much in the initial years on our strategy, and we could have moved much faster in the first 1.5-2 years.
Yoshi
Yoshi@dnxx28 · Freerance Engineer
Hi Aaron-san! Thank you for coming and long time no see! I'm Japanese Yoshi who asked you once at Aoyama Spiral in Tokyo when you came for Startup X last year^^! I plan to make XaaS service so I want you to ask two things. 1 : Box is used by various companies , industry, institution. So how did you expand Box and why don't you teach me how you payed attention for rival company and your clients? 2 : What Japanese foods did you eat when you came 2 Japan last year and do you wanna come 2 Japan again?
@levie What type of struggles and roadblocks did you face building Box in the very beginning?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@iamcuan Initially our biggest challenge was that we didn't know what we wanted to be when we "grew up". We started as a consumer product that also worked for businesses, and eventually (about 1.5 years into the business) we determined that balancing these two very different worlds and use-cases wasn't going to lead to world domination. So we went back and forth a ton in the early days, but ultimately decided to "listen" to the market and go after a space where we felt we could best innovate (and compete). That was the enterprise market.

Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@ems_hodge I'm fortunate that there have been a lot of memorable moments -- one of the more fun ones was interviewing Tim Cook at BoxWorks last fall, though! And doing a "board meeting" on the court of a Mavericks game when Mark Cuban initially invested.

@levie What does your hiring process look like ?
Jason Hitchcock
Jason Hitchcock@jasonhitchcock · Problem Solver @ Bebo
@levie What's the biggest misconception you see in the press about Box?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@jasonhitchcock That we somehow "sell storage". We obviously use storage to store files (it would be hard to run Box otherwise), but all of our value proposition is in our software layer. The vast majority of our R&D time and innovation goes toward data security, workflow, content management, collaboration, etc. -- that's ultimately what customers pay for, not the storage. And in fact the very trend that most people think could be bad for us -- Amazon lowers its storage prices/etc. -- is GOOD for us, as we leverage them in some parts of our stack.

Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@steve_young That is a ridiculous word, I hope you invented it and it's not a meme I'm missing. There are plenty of serious things in life and business, but it's super important to have fun with what you do and not take it too seriously, otherwise what's the point!

Hey Aaron, I'm a huge fan of yours! Box's stock price hit an all-time low today even though you guys seem to be headed in a good direction. How frustrating is this for you?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@camsecore The market is crazy right now, but the key is to not focus on the stock market (or your stock price) in the near-term. You have to have conviction around what you're building and make sure you're executing for the long run. All the best companies in the world have dealt with either being somewhat misunderstood (see Netflix, Facebook, etc.) or dealt with crazy stock market volatility, and they've had to get through it. The cool thing is having been working at Box for 11 years now, we've dealt with MUCH greater challenges. Like raising our Series B :-)

Harry Stebbings@harrystebbings · Podcast Host @ The Twenty Minute VC
@levie thanks so much for joining us today. Huge fan of yours and amazing to hear your journey on @karaswisher I would love to hear your thoughts on this: 10 years ago when google gave 1gb for free everyone was so amazed as it was so much better than yahoo. In terms of data and storage what will we have in 10 years that no one will believe today? Would be so amazing to have you on @twentyminutevc would be a huge honour!
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@harrystebbings I think in 10 years from now, we won't be thinking about "data storage". Just as you don't think about storage when you use Wikipedia or Facebook or Youtube, you won't be thinking about it for *anything* in 10 years. The economics are simply getting to a point where will be able to store, share, manage any amount of information in the cloud -- what you'll pay for are the differentiated or value-added services that do powerful things to that data, not the right or act to store it.
Kirill Zubovsky
Kirill Zubovsky@kirillzubovsky · Troublemaker. Founder. Dad
@levie Love this answer because it's really powerful. Essentially says: "Hey, today Dropbox might be a sexy company, but they will soon learn that consumers don't like to pay for things, and in 10 years Box will provide the features that _actual_ paying customers are willing to spend for." Brilliant!
@levie What advice would you give to entrepreneurs of color?

Hey Aaron, thanks for doing this. Big fan of you and your work. What's the best advice you would give to an entrepreneur in college, looking to start a startup. Also what advice would you give to yourself at age 21. Thanks!
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@headhanchoarod Always focus on the customer! (Some of) our customers knew what we should be doing years before we did, we just had to be listening to the right ones, in the right ways, and build technology in such a way that they would never have thought of, but for the problems that they had thought of.

@levie Hey Aaron, what's your most favorite hunt you've discovered from @producthunt?
Javier Torrez
Javier Torrez@jactorrez
Did you ever regret dropping out of school to start a business? I'd be surprised to hear you regret it today, but in the early days, how often did you think about going back? Was there any moment where you almost did?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@jactorrez No, never (truthfully). Through a mix of bad grades and boredom, I wasn't a great fit for the college environment -- so dropping out was relatively easy (minus missing my friends). And, the risk of not having a degree if Box didn't work out was mitigated as technically I was on a leave of absence, so I could always go back. Always protect the downside, but don't drive your decisions by it.
Michael Moeller
Michael Moeller@mikewmoeller
@levie - you've successfully penetrated the healthcare vertical with a cloud solution; that's no easy feat. What was the key factor in your solution gaining acceptance in healthcare?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@mikewmoeller Not letting the conventional wisdom that "healthcare is too slow" get in our way. If you can solve the security, compliance, and productivity issues that healthcare providers have, they need great technology to do their jobs. It just takes a lot more upfront work, a lot of conviction about the space, and you have to keep pursuing the market even when you see that initial inertia or resistance. At least that was our experience!

@levie who are some of the people who have had the biggest impact on you? (Stories, please!)
Tommy Kuntze
Tommy Kuntze@tmyknze · UX Designer
Thanks for taking the time to answer questions, @levie! How do you see the role of design in enterprise software? Not how a product looks (visual design), but how it works (UX and product design). It seems to be a very low priority for most enterprise companies for multiple reasons. What would you need to see in order to make design a top priority?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@tmyknze This has been an *extremely* low priority for enterprise software vendors in the past. It turns out that companies are really good at doing what their customers value (read innovator's dilemma), and in the past, customers didn't value great design or UX. The reason for this was that the BUYER of enterprise software was different from the USER of enterprise software, which meant enterprise software companies never had to get good at this. Now with the rise of consumer technology in the enterprise, CIOs/IT buyers are waking up to the fact that they have to implement technology that can be used, adopted, and loved by their employees. And if you don't have great UX, you will lose over time. This I think is going to drive the market to become far more UX and design oriented, and you're already seeing it in the startup ecosystem right now in the enterprise. Employees of enterprises rejoice!
Tommy Kuntze
Tommy Kuntze@tmyknze · UX Designer
@levie @tmyknze Thanks for this - I totally agree. With that, do you have any advice for product folks or designers within enterprise organizations (or even within Box) that might help them get UX priorities higher on their quarterly roadmaps? Design and delight are very tough things to quantify, making it hard to gain momentum for unproven but impactful launches and fixes.
DerekMartin
DerekMartin@derekmartin · Chief conductor @ Tuba
Hey Aaron, I see your passion for Box in all your talks, Im just wondering if there was a specific turning point for you in the "early stages" that really made you decide or realize that this company was going to be big? Was there a tipping point for "you" if so what was it ?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@derekmartin It's less that there was one specific tipping point (I wish I could be more dramatic) and more that every 6-12 months the belief that what you're doing could actually work, and that the market is far bigger than you thought, continues to compound: either a big new customer comes on board (like GE signing on for 300,000 employees), or closing an initial round of funding, or solving some new really hard technology problem, etc. But you have to always remain deeply paranoid and make sure you're still innovating faster than everyone else, and getting ahead of the market. You've never fully made it.
Javier Torrez
Javier Torrez@jactorrez
What are some of the most important things that you think most first-time founders overlook but shouldn't? Similarly, what are some things you think most founders pay too much attention to, but shouldn't?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@jactorrez As a founder/CEO, I often tried to figure out if I was cut out to be a "CEO" vs. just a "founder". I would compare myself to other CEOs and try and see if I would be able to get good at all the things they had gotten good at; the challenge is there's really not a prototypical CEO. The key definition for success of being a founder/CEO is can you surround yourself by people that can fill in the gaps of what you're not good, and hopefully accelerate the things you are good at. It's really really hard to get good at everything, so it's best to know what you're GREAT at (and this will move around and change over time, likely) and hire and work with other GREAT people to cover everything else.

Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@jactorrez I was a really decent intern, so maybe still doing that.
Ennio
Ennio@enniodybeli · Product Designer @Typeform
@levie what do you think about launching an 'enterprise startup' in 2016?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@enniodybeli Depends on what the 'enterprise startup' is :-). Some ideas would be super good right now, and other ideas might be totally horrible. There are a lot of products that are going after fairly narrow problems -- which can be good and bad. That's good if that narrow problem is an opening into a much bigger market. That's bad if that narrow problem stays narrow. It sounds trite, but a lot of companies don't think that latter risk through.

@levie What's your take on goal setting and planning?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@brainvolve Set extremely large goals (way higher than you should be able to reasonably achieve), but make sure you have backstops in case you don't achieve them. Have a fundamental mission that can last 5-10 years, have a rough product and strategic north star that looks out around 2-3 years, and have specific quarterly goals (that will change every quarter, likely) and tactics that lead you in the right direction.

Amir Pakzadian@amirp · Founder of Bia2, ex PM @ Medium & Amazon
Hi Aaron, how do you make sure leaders in your company make the right decisions? Do you have any leadership principles or decision making processes in place?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@amirp That's a tricky one. Sometimes really complex decisions we have to get into a room and hash out -- that doesn't mean we're going to collectively make the "right" decision but it does mean whoever is making the decision is going to hear all the possible view points. Other times, we give someone a bunch of authority and they can make the decision how they choose, but their responsibility is to check back in and show progress on how things are going. Unfortunately, there's no way to always make sure people are making the right call, but there is always a way that you can reduce risk if you've made the wrong call, and be able to adapt quickly when that happens. That's what we try and focus on.
Charles Kunene
Charles Kunene@charles_kunene · Co-founder & Product Designer @Obaa
@levie Does Box see the 'average' individual as a customer aside from its B2B-stream? And how has Box attempted to model its messaging and design aesthetic to attract this user?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@charles_kunene We have a free product that enables employees in companies to adopt our solution in a few seconds. We will always keep this free version because we deeply believe in the democratization of enterprise software -- if you work at a large company and can't do your job because the software you've been given sucks, we want you to be able to easily use Box! But that's different than, say, focusing on personal/individual use-cases like backing up your photos or your music, we don't aim to do that.

Adam Marx
Adam Marx@adammarx13 · Freelance writer/editor and music addict
Hey Aaron, thanks for taking some time today! Since it's beginning @BoxHQ has been focused on the enterprise market (something which immediately set it apart from competitors). How do you think this approach benefited you over time, especially post-IPO?
Javier Torrez
Javier Torrez@jactorrez
Hey @levie, thanks for doing this! I loved the lecture you gave at Stanford for the "How To Start A Startup". I watch it every now and then to this day. You talked a lot about the enterprise-side of startups, the side many people find "unsexy". What do you think is the most common misconception about enterprise, b2b businesses that young people overlook too often that you wish they didn't? What do you think most people are missing out on?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@jactorrez I think that enterprise software looks unsexy from afar because there are of things you have to do that don't relate purely to "innovation". You often have to build a sales force; you have to meet with customers, sometimes in suit; sometimes you have to move a little less quickly because if your product breaks it could mean mission critical processes (or even lives if you work in healthcare) are at risk. These aren't the most SEXY things of all time. But what can be sexy is when you think about the potential you can have in impacting how the world works: can you build software that helps life sciences firms develop new treatments to diseases? Can you build software that helps flatten the supply chains of the world's biggest companies, making them move faster and get the products people love to market faster? Can you build software that powers how the entertainment industry works? Maybe I'm delusional (probably am), but I think these are certainly more sexy than building yet another photo sharing app.

Hi @levie Would love to know about the biggest struggle during early days of Box? How did you face it?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@neeeharika Once we decided to focus on the enterprise market, we struggled for a LONG time getting the attention of and support from IT buyers. We were seen as a tool that was in conflict with their jobs and roles (this was early in the cloud) and they had just made massive investments in on-premises products, like Microsoft SharePoint. So we had to work for years to get IT buyers to see the light on what we were doing.
Brandyn Morelli
Brandyn Morelli@brandynmorelli · Growth @ MojoTech
@levie Thanks for taking the time for the live chat Aaron! At a previous company we implemented Box during a trial phase, and came up with a few main issues that prevented us from pushing forward: 1. File Size Limit (I believe 5GB, but we ran a lot of video) 2. Inability to share nested folders 3. Maximum file size limit of 40,000 files within a folder (Our accounting dept had 100,000+. Noting that Dropbox neither had these features at the time, my question is what is your biggest distinguishing factor from Dropbox, and why should small businesses make the leap to Box?

@levie What market shifts do you see happening/about to happen that are roughly of the same magnitude as the shift from on-premises software to cloud software?
Aaron Levie
Aaron Levie@levie · CEO, Box
@sean_a_rose Hmmmm -- that's a tough one. I think we're still only about 5% of the way through on the on-prem to cloud shift, so I think we have many years to go in our current transition period (though I wish it would have happened faster). Clearly when we have infinite computing and data in the cloud, some very new possibilities begin to open up -- and if I were starting a new company today I'd probably focus on building technologies that fundamentally require/benefit from all the computing power/data we have. The megatrends that I believe in at least right now would be: cognitive/ML/AI computing, VR, and robotics. But I think the future is about innovation on a mix of platforms, not necessarily large-scale, discrete moves like mainframe => minicomputer => PC/client/server => cloud
