Mark Cuban is dishing out a little advice for Box in advance of its IPO: Focus on the financials.

Box, the content-collaboration company, filed to go public last night, and the deal could fetch the company a valuation of $2 billion.

Cuban, the billionaire investor and entrepreneur, was Box's first outside investor back in 2005. But a change in strategy at the company made him sell his stake about a year later.
