Dropbox to focus on business users, open overseas offices

Monday 21 July 2014 | 11:26 CET | News
US cloud storage company Dropbox is planning an international expansion and shift in focus to business customers, COO Dennis Woodside told the Financial Times. The company intends to open an office in the UK, followed by other major European countries, Japan and Australia. Around 70 percent of Dropbox's users are based outside the US. Offices in major markets will allow the company to sell to businesses directly and to shape the service for local needs. Dropbox hopes to stay ahead of imitators and to get employers to pay for the popularity of its service among individual users.
