Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Aaron Levie

by Scott Edward Walker on January 24th, 2011

To Our Clients & Friends:  Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we post a short video clip of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics to help entrepreneurs succeed.

This week we present Aaron Levie, the Co-Founder and CEO of and a smart, engaging entrepreneur.  In this interesting, three-minute clip (courtesy of Stanford University’s Entrepreneurship Corner), Aaron discusses how he launched Box from his dorm room and how he had the guts to quit college to pursue his dream.  I love this clip because it’s another example of the importance of guts – which I addressed in my recent post, “What Makes a Great Entrepreneur?”  I hope you enjoy it.  Many thanks, Scott
