Cloud storage company Dropbox's cofounder and CEO, Drew Houston, is in the unusual situation—for a startup, anyway—of being pitted squarely against several tech giants at once. Google, Microsoft, and other titans are fiercely engaged in an epic cloud-storage battle with the popular upstart--a David and Goliath tale for the modern age.

To help him win, Houston has assembled an all-star team of executives who not only contribute invaluable experience in the tech industry, but also help him maintain a customer- and product-obsessed culture as the company's employee and user numbers grow exponentially.

Join Fast Company senior associate editor J.J. McCorvey for a live Q&A with Houston and his VP of engineering, Aditya Agarwal, a former Facebook executive who oversaw the creation of the social network's news feed. They'll discuss what it took to build one of the Valley’s most coveted engineering divisions, why it’s important for employees to feel like peers, and what lies ahead on Dropbox’s product road map.

The event will begin on Wednesday, April 1st at 12 p.m. ET, but you can get your questions in now using the "make a comment" box below.
