With the $250 million secured, it would see Dropbox valued at $10 billion. Considering the cloud storage outfit was founded in San Francisco in 2007, and with over 200 million users, it should come as no surprise to see such a giant evaluation. It should see Dropbox better compete with other cloud storage services and the companies behind them, such as Box, SkyDrive, Google Drive and more.
