The new year got  off to a great start with a slew of startup fundraising and acquisition announcements. The streak seems to be continuing this week too, with one of the highlights being BankBazaar raising $13 mn funding from Sequoia Capital & Walden.

This week, we also covered some insightful trends on the hardware product startup ecosystem in India. One such interesting startup is Grey Orange Robotics, who is trying to save e-commerce companies’ precious hours and money using their technology.

We also posted some interesting articles from our guest authors, that includes a guide to foreign startups looking to incorporate in the USA.

For all those who missed out on the action on NEXTBIGWHAT last week, do go through our weekly recap below.
