Andrew W. Houston

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Andrew W. Houston was born in Acton, Massachusetts back in 1983. He graduated from Acton-Boxborough Regional High School in the 1990’s. He continued his education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) graduating with a degree in Computer Science. After graduation, he worked for Bit9, a cybersecurity company Accolade and HubSpot.

In 2007, he co-founded a small company you may have heard of Dropbox. He owns 24.4 percent of the voting power in Dropbox, his current worth is $2.2 billion. I wonder if he would like to buy some property in NW Arkansas?

Amazing how these new technologies have made so much money so quickly for these entrepreneurs. Dropbox is a useful product and I use it to catch my photos on my phone and transfer them to my computer. Hope he calls you soon.

Good morning James,

I use the product and as long as he stays away from telling me how to live or vote his wealth is fine by me!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

I have certainly heard of dropbox and they are always saying that my box is full and to pay them money for more space, haha.

Hi James:

I am certainly very familiar with DropBox but had no idea the founder was from Acton! We lived there for about 6 months after moving back to Boston from Minneapolis in 1990. A-B High School had a great reputation, and of course MIT does as well!!
