"The War for Talent" Fireside Chat with Drew Houston, CEO and cofounder of Dropbox

Drew Houston, CEO and cofounder of Dropbox, is interviewed by Jason Pontin, Editor in Chief of MIT Technology Review and Chairman of MIT Enterprise Forum about the company's success and his thoughts on how to attract top talent to a startup.

Drew answers questions like:

How has Dropbox been able to scale its engineering team successfully? What are the right incentives that young companies can offer top talent? What are the biggest recruiting mistakes young tech companies make?
