When Aaron Levie launched Box.net from his college dorm room, he was exploring a lot of new territory. Now, as CEO of a company that has raised nearly $30 million in venture capital since 2005, he has filtered what he has learned into five lessons, which he shares in this entrepreneur thought leader lecture, given at Stanford University:
- Do something that was not possible three years ago.
- Do something you are extremely passionate about.
- Don’t compromise.
- If you feel comfortable, you’re probably not doing it right.
- Don’t write your obituary too early.
