Company’s Spokeswoman Anna Andreescu told BusinessWeek, “What we can say is that with over 200 million users and 4 million businesses, Dropbox has continued a strong momentum”.
Dropbox has yet to use all its cash reserves from the previous funding. With these new additional funds, Dropbox could further strengthen its business plans and work in creating new opportunities.
