All the sharks were shocked by his pitch to which he explained that he needed the investment in phases. Anupam explained that taking a huge amount and investment in the market to gain peak is not possible thus he went out.

Namita went out, as she wasn’t convinced by his medical proof of it through his words. Peyush went out as he didn’t find it investable at the moment.

Ashneer also moved out as he didn’t understand the concept of valuation and it’s a silly idea of demanding such a pitch. Aman also moved out because it is not logical and wished him all the best. No investment took place in this pitch.

Anupam was only left and he actually gave the offer of 50 lakhs with a few conditions, which includes- it should be clean and organic, no similar product should exist, must give equity to the co-founder Ekbal, should add co-founder for marketing and distribution.

His offer was 30 lakhs for 10% and 20 lakhs as a loan. They gave a counteroffer to cut down a few conditions, Anupam said his offer is not negotiable, they requested him to give 50 lakhs as an investment for 10%, Anupam said it can be done but equity will be 15%. They agreed to the deal and took the check.

Aman was ready to take a bet on these youngsters, Namita also showed interest and they gave a combined deal of 30 lakhs for 30% equity as they needed more time and focus on sharks.
