Renal Project founder came on the show who left his U.S  job to do something in India. His work is actually working towards the societal problem of Kidney Failure which is around 15 lakh plus available in India, and each upcoming year 2.5 lakh are getting added.

He wanted shark expertise along with an investment of 1 crore for 3% equity, company valuation is around 33.33Cr. He called Jitesh Pedenekar to explain the working model of Renal Dialysis equipment. Jitesh Pedenekar is the operational head of the business.

Ashneer directly came to the point and gave an offer of 25 lakhs for 1%equity and 75 lakhs for 12% debt with a time duration of 5 years, company valuation is 25 Cr. Namita offered 1 Crore for 10% equity as she is the Pharma expert. Peyush didn’t like much about it much and went out as he didn’t find it investable due to the large competition.

Anupam also moved out as it had not achieved the level he would be convinced to invest in. Aman joined Namita’s offer of 1 crore for 10% equity, but what difference does it create? Two sharks with two different expertise can make this business a successful business.

Shashank shared that he had an offer in his hand from outside investors which will give him a valuation of 20 Cr. Namita and Aman gave him another offer of 1 Crore for 8% equity. Ashneer also jumped and changed his offer to 50 lakhs for 2% equity and the remaining amount at a 12% interest rate. Shashank asked for a moment and gave a counteroffer of 1 Crore for 4% equity to which Namita asked him to do it for 6%, Shashank needed a pharma expert, thus making his deal with Namita and Aman, took his checks with his right decision.

Bipin shared that 15% of the grown fruits go into waste in India each year because of no solution to it which also affects the income of our farmers. We all will be agreed to this that the first sorted fruits in the market are sold easily, small size fruits also go out for small price, but fruits that are not good in size and color go to waste. That’s how Kamdhenu foods were born and then Morriko Pure Foods came into fame.

Did “Morriko Pure Foods” get a deal on Shark Tank?

Bipin Shah and his two children came on Shark Tank India in season 1, episode 14 looking for an investment and a vision in hands and eyes. They placed their pitch for an amount of 1 crore for 3% equity in the business, company valuation is 33.33 Crore.

They served a few samples to the sharks to taste and after that, the sharks fired a few questions to them. Anupam asked how he would grow his B2B in the future to which Tanmay replied that in Breakfast, Energy Bar, Protein Bar, Ice -cream, Milkshakes all of them require dehydrated fruits and this demand will help them to grow their B2B  and for B2C. They are available on Amazon.

Aman said that all the sharks liked the product and were coming together which included Aman, Anupam, Ashneer, and Peyush, except Namita. Namita went out because she thought that other sharks would be the better option for them to go with. 4 sharks together gave a combined offer of 1crore for 25% equity as it requires a lot of work.

They took a moment for discussion and gave a counteroffer of 1 crore for 8% equity, 2% each to which all the 4 sharks rejected to go with and moved out. No deal was made and Morriko went with no taste from the show.

Founder story and details:

Purva Aggrawal from Delhi is the founder of GoodGood Piggy. She is a 25-year-old entrepreneur, who came on the show with enthusiasm in episode 14 of season 1 of Shark Tank India. She shared that the idea of this came to her mind from a small but very impactful incident.

Purva has a four-year-old nephew for whom she bought a piggy bank from a shop and gave him. He went to everyone and asked to put a coin in it. No one had a coin and someone said that if there was some digital method for it, then it would be easier and helpful which clicked for Purva and that’s how GoodGood Piggy was born.

Did ‘GoodGood Piggy’ get a deal on Shark Tank?

Purva came on the show full of confidence and hope. She was looking for an investment to grow her business of amount 45 lakhs for 5% equity in the business. She called a very cute little girl, Maya on the show for the presentation of GoodGood Piggy, and was really a great presentation to be shown on the show.

But the pitch was not great for Purva as Ashneer and all the sharks except Namita were completely against Purva’s claim about her business’ uniqueness. Ashneer made his decision between the pitch and went out as she needed to do a lot of work and suggested her to learn some humility.

Anupam also went out with a suggestion that she could go forward with the education tech line but Purva went on talking high, Peyush was not able to control his laughter, but gave her a chance as he had also gone from the same stage. He asked if she was ready to give 50% of the company and wanted the answer is Yes or No, again Purva went on explaining which made Peyush go out.

Aman also moved out but suggested her if she believed in it, then she must go on. Namita encountered Anupam during the pitch when Anupam said that it was impossible to go with this business, Namita asked why. Namita in the end applauded Purva’s attitude, but she also took her steps back from investment as she doesn’t invest in a zero revenue company but wished her all the best for her future. Unfortunately, no deal was made on the show.
