This week we saw music streaming service Dhingana shutdown, while Naspers decided to roll up its payments businesses across the world (including PayU India) into one entity called PayU Global. BK Birla, formerly of ZopNow & Asklaila, made his way back to Asklaila and Gurmit Singh became the new MD of Yahoo India.
We also posted about hiring in a startup, and why work experience is overrated. Here is a curated list of all that has happened this past week.
