Did you know… 


… that today is Leave It to Beaver’s Birthday? In 1957, the TV comedy Leave It to Beaver premiered on CBS. The first toilet “tank” ever shown on a TV show was on Leave It to Beaver. In 1957 the networks were squeamish enough about displaying a bathroom on television, let alone an actual toilet. After several rounds of wrangling between the network and the production company, a compromise was reached: The episode could include shots of a toilet tank, but not the toilet itself. Problem solved! 😉

Top news & stories of the startup ecosystem from India & around the world
To encash on the growing opportunity, venture debt firm Alteria Capital has announced the second close of Alteria Capital India Fund I at $85.48 Mn (INR 625 Cr). Launched in October 2017 by former Innoven Capital executives Ajay Hattangdi and Vinod Murali, the Alteria Capital India Fund I has a total corpus of $123 Mn (INR 800 Cr). It has a green-shoe option of a further $30 Mn (INR 200 Cr).
In line with the growing competition and investor interest in the logistics sector, Japanese conglomerate SoftBank is looking to invest $200 Mn-$250 Mn in the ecommerce logistics startup Delhivery, which was looking to launch its IPO (initial public offering). The funding will be led via SoftBank Vision Fund at a post-money valuation of around $1.2 Bn, marking its entry into much coveted Unicorn club.
Mumbai-based venture capital firm Blume Ventures is on its track to raise its $80 Mn third fund as it reportedly announced the first close at $40 Mn. At the same time, the firm has received commitments for another $20 Mn from both new and existing investors and is looking to complete the entire fundraise for Fund III over the next few months.
In an attempt to address such questions plaguing the ecosystem today, Inc42 is launching The State Of Indian Startup Ecosystem Report 2018 at its flagship annual invite-only conference, The Ecosystem Summit on 16th November 2018. Find out more here!

To understand the growing trend of freelancing in India, Inc42, in association with PayPal, is conducting a series of webinars titled —The Rising Freelance Economy. These webinars aim to throw light on the different trends in freelancing, whether it is breaking away from a regular job, or women taking up freelancing. Here are the excerpts from the latest webinar.
After the European Union (EU) regulated the collection, storage and usage of personal data through the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it is set to dictate the terms on which the Internet operates by curbing the freedom to share content on digital media platforms.

Nearly a year after German fintech startup N26 announced that it would launch its service in the U.K., the company is launching in the U.K. N26 is already quite popular in the Eurozone, with more than 1.5 million customers. In this new market, it will face tough competition from existing players, such as Revolut, Monzo, Starling and many others.
Amazon garnered praise for raising the minimum wage for its hourly workers to $15 yesterday, but the widely-publicized move also came at the expense of monthly bonuses and stock options. Several Amazon warehouse employees have criticized the move, stating they would actually be losing thousands in incentive pay.
The median hourly pay with tip for Uber drivers in the U.S. is $14.73, according to a new study conducted by Ridester, a publication that focuses on the ride-hail industry. That figure includes tips but doesn’t account for expenses like insurance, gas and car depreciation incurred while working. Using Ridester’s low-end estimate of $5 per hour in vehicle costs, drivers would bring in $9.73 per hour and potentially much less.

How are your habits


(Aristotle says: We are what we repeatedly do…
“The glorious benefit of a habit is that it converts something that requires a lot of willpower and focus into something that becomes automatic and often outside of our conscious thought.”
