Box provides amazing benefits that help us prioritize our lives. During this global pandemic, we picked roughly one day per month over the last year that we just close. The entire company takes the day off.

Aaron (CEO, on the right) and Dylan (COO, on the left) started as high school best friends. The idea of Box originated as a research project Aaron was working on. He then dropped out to start-up Box as a company with Dylan. And was funded by $20,000 online poker winnings! At least until Mark Cuban came in. Aaron cold-emailed Cuban about Box, and got a response immediately. In the fall of 2005, Cuban decided to put in $350,000.
