ETtech Deals Digest: winter continues despite slight uptick in funding


The funding winter for Indian startups has been long and cold. Venture funding for Indian startups fell to $2.7 billion in the September quarter, from nearly $12 billion in the same period last year, according to Venture Intelligence.

However, funding picked up slightly this week, with Contentstack raising $80 million and Simplilearn $45 million.

Amid the macroeconomic uncertainty and investors’ aversion to risk, Indian startups could be in for more good news soon, as Tiger Global’s head of private investments Scott Shleifer will be in the country next week, ET reported on Nov 17. Tiger Global is one of the most aggressive investors globally and in India, having backed companies such as Flipkart, Ola, Razorpay and Upstox.

Here are the top funding deals this week.
