Start-ups start saving, winter is here

After the exuberance comes the reality check. E-commerce in India is warming up for a course correction as funding slows down, bigger deals get fewer, and investors take stock and ask start-ups how they plan to make money. The big boys will continue to get funded, but the days of easy money may be over.

Winter Comes Knocking for Statups

If you're one of those over funded startups pray you don't do a down round. For others, conserve cash, take just enough.. Winter is coming.

No more easy money. @venkyganesan says winter is coming for companies that can't show a path toward profit. http://t.co/ej2ICt8Jgb
