Editor’s Take

With its personal set of challenges, ‘Hyper-Local’ is the brand new buzz round. However, the idea isn't always absolutely new. Earlier, there have been local startups consisting of Chotu.In, or global ones like Rewinery, Kozmo, Webvan, etc., however alas they didn't took off. The new age startups are of the notion that this would take over e-trade as it is able to serve more alternatives in relatively less time and with much less attempt. Also, with smartphones penetrating from one hundred thirty million to 650 million in India and round 2 Bn global; greater gamers entering into the neighbourhood area and massive investments, the  future is n-commerce.
