    Why Are E-Commerce Startups Bullish On Retail?

    Box Has Always Been About Reshaping Enterprise Software

    One of Box’s earliest marketing stunts was a series of billboards on California’s Route 101 in which it made no bones about going after enterprise content management (ECM) big shot, Microsoft SharePoint.
