Drew Houston

CEO and Co-founder, Dropbox
Drew Houston is CEO and co-founder of Dropbox, and has led Dropbox’s growth from a simple idea to a service used by millions around the world. Before founding Dropbox, Drew received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and computer science from MIT in 2006. After graduating, Drew was endlessly frustrated by carrying USB drives and emailing himself files. In early 2007, he teamed up with fellow MIT student Arash Ferdowsi and the two began working on the project that would eventually become Dropbox. Drew has been named one of Fortune’s “40 Under 40," and in early 2014 Drew and Arash were named TechCrunch’s “Founders of the Year.”
