This week was again fuelled by a slew of funding related activity, with Inventus Capital raising a $106 Mn second fund to invest in Indian startups and online education service iProf raising Rs 55 Crore in a Series B round, being some of the highlights.
The launch of Bitcoin only e-commerce store HighKart also proved to be a positive development in the Indian Bitcoin ecosystem among all the current regulatory confusion.
We also covered some insightful trends on the Google VS Facebook advertising war, made our Startup Predictions for 2014 and a look at the real gold diggers of the e-commerce industry.
If you missed out on any of the action on NextBigWhat last week, here’s a quick recap.
