TechStar’s alum, Lua, just raised $2.5M and is launching its mobile workforce service this fall ...

Lua, a suite of digital tools that powers teams to communicate and collaborate on the go, has just raised $2.5 million led by IA Ventures. This follows the company’s TechStar’s NY demo day back in June, where the Lua must have left a good impression on investors.

Lua‚Äôs service¬†will be launching in fall of this year, but the company has¬†already secured partners¬†in entertainment, hospitality, retail and sports while in private beta. According to co-founder¬†Eli Bronner, ‚Äúany mobile workforce with professionals in the field and professionals in the office with a constant need to connect can use Lua. We see every business becoming more and more nimble and mobile.‚ÄĚ

F**k it, we'll do it live!

Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.

The service, which you can catch a glimpse of in the pictures below, is flexible enough to work with teams of three people to¬†hundreds of thousands ‚ÄĒ all due to its relatively simple, 3-part structure: a team member directory, messaging and automatically synced documents.

In addition to IA Ventures, Lua received support from the following:

Justin Shaffer (Facebook), Ronald S. Lauder (RSL) Management, Strauss Zelnick (CEO, Zelnick Media), David Tisch (Managing Director Techstars), Jason Ostheimer (AdvancIt Capital) , Barry Silbert (Founder, CEO Second Market), Susan Holden (CFO, Mother), Zach Weinberg and Nat Turner (Founders Invite Media, Flatiron Health)
