None of the companies, barring some early players, has been showing any signs of making profit, thanks to ever-increasing customer acquisition and costs. VCs have also applied a break on their aggressive investment spree, and only those with a clear differentiator are getting investments. Fingerlix is one such company that weathered the storm to register a steady growth, drawing VCs’ attention.
