By the end of last year, there were 19 investments listed on the Microsoft Ventures portfolio page. (I had counted 18, but that's before Microsoft at some point later added CloudLanes, a cloud data-management company, to its roster.)
Since the start of this year, Microsoft has added another 13 companies to its Ventures investment list. In addition to Trusona, here are the others:
PandaDoc, a company that "helps accelerate the way organizations transact"
Frame, which is designed to help users move Windows desktop applications to the cloud and access them from any device
Agolo, a company that has "advanced summarization software" for news, chat, voice, and video
Bonsai, a company focused on automating the management of complex machine-learning algorithms
Synack, a security-testing-focused company that uses "highly vetted ethical hackers" to crowd source solutions
Livongo, a consumer-targeted digital health company that works with people with chronic conditions
CNEX Labs, a semiconductor company working on solid-state storage controllers and software for datacenters
Prevedere, which provides predictive models of future sales, revenue, and costs using AI
Pickit, a company providing "professionally curated images sourced from the world's leading providers" that can be used inside PowerPoint, Word, Sway, and Windows 10
SnapRoute, creators of open-source software for networking hardware used in datacenters
AirMap, an airspace-management platform for drones
Illusive Networks, a company working on "advanced deception cybersecurity technology"
As Microsoft execs originally indicated, cloud, security and machine-learning continue to be key focus points for its Ventures investments.
