Trending: Why Microsoft is buying back $40B in stock

Discuzz, a Bellevue startup that’s developing technologies to help organizations better communicate with partners and customers, has raised $275,000, according to a SEC filing.

Discuzz is led by former Microsoft managers Andy Harjanto and Conrad Bayer. Harjanto worked at Microsoft from 1994 to 2008, before leaving to found Guppers. Bayer is the former general manager of Identity and Access at Microsoft.

Here’s how the company describes its offering:

We’ve reached out to the company for more details, but you can get a better sense of what they are building in this video:
