Instagram vs Box

I was in the Bay Area yesterday, the big news was that Instagram was acquired by Facebook for $1B.  The same day, I went to visit the Box.com office.  While visiting the Box office, I couldn’t help but think how vastly different Box and Instagram are as companies.   This post is not about if one startup is better than the other, but it does put the Instagram acquisition into perspective.

One thought on “Instagram vs Box

  1. Instagram = $33/user
    Box = $5500/user – $450 revenue/user = $5050/user

    It’s a bargain from that perspective. I guess user data and potential ad-recipients are hot, lets just hope it’s not a bubble. Even Facebook’s $100 Billion seems a bit skeptical.
