Automation Anywhere, a robotic process automation startup, raised $250 million in a funding round led by New Enterprise Associates and Goldman Sachs. The San Jose-based startup employs software robots, or bots, that make business processes self-running. The latest round of financing brings Automation Anywhere's valuation to $1.8 billion.

There is a new direct-to-consumer bra company called Harper Wilde that is going to change the way you bra shop. You choose any three bras to try on in the comfort of your home for free and you send back the bras you don't like. Harper Wilde just raised $2 million led by CRV with plans to expand the number of sizes and colors offered.

An Israeli startup called Like A Glove is going to help you find the perfect pair of jeans. Like A Glove created a pair of smart shorts that use sensors to take exact measurements of your waist and hips. After the data is collected and synced up with the app, a catalog pops up different pairs of jeans with ratings between one and five stars for the best fit.
