Dropbox

Dropbox is a cloud-storage company focused on letting people access and collaborate on documents in the easiest ways possible. Dropbox rose to prominence by becoming a go-to tool for consumers, who would then employ the service for their professional work. (A particular user-favorite feature included the ability to sync documents between computers via a “magic folder.") Dropbox became cash-flow positive and reached 500 million registered users in 2016—business clients include Spotify, Under Armour, and Hyatt—and in 2017 it released Paper, its feature-loaded Google Docs competitor, to positive reviews.
