The Edge And Bono Invest In Dropbox

@U2, April 02, 2012

Popular file sharing service, Dropbox, announced via Twitter today that The Edge and Bono are investors in the company. The accompanying photo shows half of U2 with members of the Dropbox team. Techcrunch.com reports that the investment occurred a year ago, and it might have had its roots going back to 2007. The article states:

Back in 2007, entrepreneur brothers Ali and Hadi Partovi had just launched a fast-growing music app called iLike on Facebook. They had a new feature they wanted to launch, a way for artists to post videos to fans through the app, so they went through some mutual friends to reach out to U2. The result: a video interview with Bono and the band about a previously-unreleased track, Wave of Sorrow.

The relationship has developed from there, it appears. The Partovis were early angel investors in Dropbox, and have maintained contact. Judging from the photo recently posted to Twitter, they introduced the band members to founders Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi.
