You can bet that Box boss Aaron Levie felt pinch-yourself good yesterday when he discovered that his company’s new iPhone and iPad app was No. 10 on the list of top (free) apps in the App store. It’s worth noting, that as of this writing the app is at No.9
For anyone who doesn’t understand how impressive this is, at that moment, it was more popular than Clash of Clans, Skype for iPad — and it rivaled Netflix. It’s astonishing when any kind of Enterprise app ever hits the top 50 list, let alone one that was created nine years ago by two guys who hadn’t yet finished college (Levie still hasn’t) and knew very little about the Enterprise world when they started.
Box claims a “founded in the dorm room” story that contains, within it, a sexy twist. The company’s co-founder, Dylan Smith provided the company with 20k in startup funding which he won gambling online. Both Levie and Smith have yet to hit 30.
