Box CEO Aaron Levie has confirmed that the company has landed $100 million in new funding at a $2 billion valuation, doubling its worth since a $150 million raise in August 2012. The infusion was provided by Itochu Technology Ventures, Macnica, Telefonica, Telstra, DST Global, Mitsui and Coatue, among others. The company, which offers a cloud-based content storage and sharing platform, has now raised about $430 million in VC cash since its founding in 2005.
Box reportedly plans to use the proceeds to fuel international expansion and to invest in its European headquarters in London. The company intends to open its first offices in Japan, Australia and Brazil in 2014. Box will also grow its sales and customer support teams, potentially doubling its number of employees outside the U.S. to about 200.
