Enterprise vs. Consumer Bid’ness

Workday was founded seven years ago by two guys with the best imaginable pedigrees, deep pockets, and networks to call on to get stuff done quickly. Duffield and Bhusri raised a reported $250 million to get the company humming and grew steadily to reach $134 million in annual sales as of last January. That’s impressive, but by contrast consumer-focused file-sharing site Dropbox was founded two years after Workday and in that shorter stretch also raised $250 million and reached $240 million in sales.
