Five Companies That Came To Win This Week


Cloud Collaboration Specialist FuzeBox Closes $20 Million

FuzeBox, a San Francisco-based cloud collaboration startup, landed a $20 million Series A financing round and named a well-known ex-Cisco executive to its board.

FuzeBox offers mobile and web-based collaboration tools that compete with Cisco's WebEx and Citrix's GoToMeeting, and uses scalable video codec (SVC) compression to encode video streams at different resolutions.

FuzeBox offers its products as subscription-based services or via appliances installed on-premises, and earlier this year it released Fuze Join for iPhone, an app for mobile videoconferencing and collaboration.
