Microsoft Ventures invests in mobile app startup Zula

Microsoft Ventures has chosen its third startup to make a seed fund investment in: Zula, a cross-platform mobile productivity app to improve team collaboration.

Zula aims to streamline team productivity and communication tasks such as file-sharing, messaging, conference calling and quick poll-taking.

Microsoft did not say how much it invested.

It’s the third seed investment for Microsoft Ventures since it launched in June as the overarching umbrella under which Microsoft groups its efforts aimed at fostering tech startups.

The other two startups funded so far are SkyGiraffe, which helps businesses deploy mobile apps, and Ranku, an online education discovery engine.
