This is a device that is very easy to operate and has a sensor inside it, which turns into red and green light.

How was their Shark Tank pitch?

Founders of Qzense labs came with a very shocking pitch till now in the Shark Tank season 1, which was for 1 Crore rupees for 0.25 % equity in the business.

All the Sharks were stunned by this pitch. It says the company has a valuation of 400 Crore rupees. Anupam was first to go out as he didn’t find the product useful and the company valuation structure. He was very disappointed and said it’s not even a deal, 0.25% for 1 crore is nothing. He said that they were there to just popularize their products and addition to that, Aman also went out with a quote ‘You had me at 400 crores’ relatable to ‘I had you at hello’ and went out.

Navita appreciated the women’s efforts but went out. Ashneer was highly disappointed and felt disrespected and said that they were there for a joke. To encounter that Rubel replied they were not there for a joke by showing the condition of Shristi as she was pregnant and they had come from Bangalore.

Ashneer still found their pitch as a joke and went out of the pitching. Vineeta Singh gave an offer of the same amount for 5% equity means the company’s valuation was now 20 Crore and said she was offering a fair price as per their past sales.

Rubel and Shristi had a discussion and gave a counteroffer of 1 Crore rupees for 0.5% shares. Vineeta politely said that she had given a fair offer and went out of the pitch with the best of luck to them.
