Did Hammer get a deal on Shark Tank?

Pitching is good or bad does that matter a lot? No, even if you didn’t pitch well but your product has that power, it will pull the investors to put their money into it. With such powerful products, Rohit came into Shark Tank India with a pitch of 30 lakhs in exchange for 3% equity in the business, company valuation is around 10 crore.

After the demonstration, the pitch was getting very interesting to watch. Peyush was continuously trying to compare Hammer with Boat which made Rohit very uncomfortable to respond to it. Namita was first to go as she found this market very cluttered and business with many SKUs is quite hard to handle and went out.

Peyush was not much impressed by his attitude and words and said, “I think I need to take 50% of the company for 5 crores but I know you’ll not agree to that” and moved out. Aman, the silent shark, finally spoke as he also has the same field of production. He told Rohit that he is the villain of the market in this field and directly asked him to sell his company for 1 crore to which Rohit asked what would be his role after that. Aman replied that they’ll work together and build together.

Anupam and Ashneer gave him an offer of 1 crore for 25 % equity in the business. Rohit asked Aman to revise his offer for equity to which Peyush asked if he was selling it, then he’ll also buy it for 1crore. Ashneer also encountered that he’ll buy it for 1.5 crores, the pitch was getting more interesting. Anupam went out of the pitch as Rohit was only going with the words of Aman, Ashneer still remained in the pitch with the same offer.

Rohit took a break to drink water, Aman also took advice from Namita, and then Aman revised his offer for 1 crore for 75% equity, Rohit rejected the offer. Aman again changed his offer to 1 crore for 50% of the company, Ashneer encountered and gave an offer of 1 crore for 25% due to which Aman made his offer to 1 crore for 40%, which was non-negotiable.

Ashneer went out with laughter, Anupam said that Rohit was going to get no deal but Aman again repeated his deal which was of 1 crore for 40% equity, Rohit took the deal and his check and moved out.

Anupam and Aman moved out as they didn’t find that Pratik and Ashish were clear themselves about what they wanted to do. Namita also moved out as she didn’t have any expertise in it. Ashneer said that they have made a college project their life, they should leave it and must work for a good company to find the actual problem. Peyush is from the tech field and wanted to give these two youngsters a chance and gave an offer of 25 lakhs for 25% equity and 25 lakhs as debt.

Who are the founders of Coco-Fit?

Shashikant – Founder and CEO of Cocofit, Sunil Kumar – CEO of the company, and Pawan is the director of the company. They all are software engineers and childhood friends and are still working in their respective companies. They shared that India is 3rd largest country in the production of Coconut but still it is a very unhygienic product.

Coconut transportation is also very difficult because of its big size and weight. Healthy nutrition juice was one of the best options to stay fit but sellers use water in it. To overcome all these, Cocofit was born. As it is underrated, unhygienic, and unutilized, it is a great platform to go with.

Did Coco-Fit get a deal on Shark Tank?

It was the funniest pitch of Shark Tank which was for 5 Rs in exchange for 5% equity in the business. Yes, it was the actual pitch given on the show and it is unexpected also. What was the story behind this pitch?

So, the actual story was that they have already earned a huge amount of money but wanted someone who is an expert and can give them some guidance for taking it forward in the market. All the sharks were very impressed by the sales and revenue numbers but were not much convinced with the model of the business.

Ashneer directly went out by saying that even if they were giving it for 1 Re, he wouldn’t buy it. Peyush also believed the same and went out. Aman, Anupam, and Namita gave a trio offer to Cocofit for the same pitch as demanded of 5 Rs for 5% equity in the business and also disobeyed Ashneer and Peyush’s concept of franchise issue. Cocofit took the deal from the trio and got their check of 5 Rs from sharks. Aman said that he can pay them in cash with a burst of laughter.
