While people around the world were busy today fooling each other with some crazy pranks, the tech world was not going to stay behind either.
While most of the tech biggies like Google are well known for their pranks, even the Indian startups outdid themselves this year -the notable ones include Hike’s Direct Cash transfer, iXigo’s premium auto rickshaw service – RickAir, Snapdeal’s entry into the matrimony business and many more.
We thought of trying out something different.
Earlier today we published a post – FYGW raises $2 Mn in funding led by UK & US based angel investors.
Well as you’d have guessed by the tone of this post, that was a prank. Amit and the team behind FYGW were all in on this.
Besides the fact of this being an April Fool’s prank, we also wanted to get a basic insight of how funding news spread in the startup ecosystem.
