Rivigo’s board has given green signal for this acquisition and according to an ET report, company is in early-stage talks with Flipkart’s logistics arm eKart and FirstCry for acquisition.

  2. Deserv ultimately invests users money into indirect mutual funds. I would have thought they manage the funds themselves but then realised that it’s only possible to do so by the PMS providers so deserv can’t technically actively manage users assets.

    Their key differentiator is their marketing and not product

  3. dezerv is paying people 200 rs to comment on their youtube channel with 20 different IDs
    they are sponsoring a lot of youtube channels

    and now they have pseudo sponsored

    didn't expect this from you caleb

  4. Fact:- Every social influencer think ,adding over reacting and outstruk faces in subtitles,give them more views; especially when foreigners make videos about Indian topic.

    Like if you agree

  5. In the bird's eye segment, an 8-week moving average will be helpful (along with the weekly funds raised) to understand the trend of funding, rather than quoting WoW growth, which can be erratic
