We traced the journey of Dexetra, a startup that went without cash for over 8 months and yet, pulled through to deliver some blockbuster apps. Flipkart seems to have taken our advice on buying Myntra seriously. Earlier this week, it made a buyout offer. We had some great guest posts, opinions and analysis on the site.
