Microsoft has announced today a fund investment in Zula, a startup that looks to streamlines mobile communication and productivity. Zula apparently impressed Microsoft during their presentation at TechCrunch Disrupt earlier this year and the devices and services giant "immediately saw the benefit" of a mobile-first, cross-organization communication app.
“We started with a focus on our team and how we could make it easier to collaborate on projects. We wanted a simple way to connect, share documents and make group calls that was built for a mobile team. We are thrilled by the investment with Microsoft Ventures and look forward to bringing our service to new customers around the world," Zula's chairman Jeff Pulver stated.
The whole idea behind Zula is to solve challenges that many teams face when collaborating via mobile devices. You can check out the video of Zula's presentation during the TechCrunch Disrupt event earlier this year and visit Zula's website to learn more about their product.
