Last week, ReadWrite Editor-in-in-Chief Dan Lyons sat down with 27-year-old Box CEO Aaron Levie to discuss the complex market of enterprise cloud technology in the third ReadWrite Mix event in San Francisco.
In their wide-ranging, hour-long conversation, Lyons and Levie touched on just about every topic of interest in the enterprise startup space. But perhaps the most interesting aspects concerned Levie’s own unique story. This 1:53 clip touches on how growing up in Seattle helped inspire Levie to begin starting companies as a teenager (publishing HTML webpages to the Internet was all it took, he says), and how he had to try his hand at countless projects on the way to his dream of starting a successful company. Levie did acknowledge an alternate dream that included playing professional sports: “It’s either MLB, or start an Internet company,” he joked.
