Krypton, which is planning to create a mobile Microsoft Office competitor, is said to be valued at $400m.

Krypton was founded by Shishir Mehrotra, a former executive of YouTube. He has raised two rounds of funding for the company.

Citing people familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reported that Khosla Ventures led Krypton’s second funding round, valuing the company at $400m.
