If you’re looking for inspiration, this is one meetup you won’t want to miss. Florian Jourda, Box’s seventh employee and first hired engineer will be making will share insights into Box’s history and strategies leading up to its success. The content management and collaboration platform thrived in an extremely competitive market eventually going public early this year. Florian will also be discussing Box’s pride – its carefully crafted culture that survived explosive growth. Join us to glean valuable insights on what makes a successful product, learn about the importance of company culture, and enjoy mingling with like-minded individuals at the networking session after.

[Footnote] After 10 years in Silicon Valley, Florian is now moving back to France to bring back best practices about technology and organizational scaling as a permanent advisor of the French accelerator TheFamily. [If TheFamily sounds Marlon Brando-ish, it is perhaps so. Below are two presentations by TheFamily co-founder Oussama Ammar about France and startups. Coming from the land of Pascal, PoincarĂ©, Laplace, Fermat and Descartes, these are slightly different from the usual Valley narratives.]
