Dropbox was founded in June 2007 by Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi. It launched in September 2008 as a simple way for people to have their files wherever they are, and share them easily. The simplicity of the product combined with the reliability of the sync led consumers to bring Dropbox to work to empower collaboration.
