Box CEO: I built a $2.5 billion company and took it public at age 29, but it was insanely hard

Aaron Levie is co-founder and CEO of Box, a cloud-based file sharing service. He took Box public when he was 29, and now it has a $2.5 billion market cap. But it took a lot of work to get there, including sleepless nights on yoga mats in the office, and the decision to turn down a $600 million acquisition offer from Citrix that his board wanted him to accept. Levie told Business Insider’s US Editor-in-Chief, Alyson Shontell, about those experiences and more for this episode of “Success! How I Did It.”
