Katidhan

Shark Tank India Season 3 Episode 41

The first startup to come to the Tank is a wildlife tracking and monitoring system that helps farmers save their crops while also keeping wild animals from being hurt. The entrepreneur asks for Rs 1.5 Crores for 2.5% equity of the company before going on his background and why he got into this field. He discusses his product, how it works and how his two product SKUs help to keep animals at bay.

He goes deeper into the prices and how his products have helped farmers to save money. After that, he gets into his revenue and how much he has made using this innovative product. The Sharks question him about who are the main users of the product and feel unsure about investing when its main buyers are government bodies and NGOs, considering the steep pricing.

After answering further questions about his demands and why he is asking for Rs 1.5 Crores as well as his competitions in India, the Sharks start to make up their minds. Although most opt out, Ritesh gives the founder a deal to which he happily agrees ending the negotiation with Rs 75 Lakhs for 5% equity + Rs 75 Lakhs debt at 10% interest for 3 years.

Nema AI

Shark Tank India Season 3 Episode 41

The next company to come to the Tank is a smart education platform for neurodivergent people that is able to catch these behavioural difficulties easily and effectively using simple steps. The SaaS-based platform uses only 5 minutes to effectively tell users what a child is failing to understand. The platform also provides further recommendations for cognitive enhancement as well as a learning curriculum. The founder also mentions that the platform is able to solve these issues much faster and more effectively than conventional learning methods. In the end, she asks for Rs 80 Lakhs for 5% equity in the company.

The founder then opens up about her background and what interested her in this field. She also mentions how the platform can be used and the fact that this isn’t a medical diagnosis but only a look into what can be improved in a child and simple steps that can help them to learn better. Later on, she gives a demo to the Sharks with Anupam’s help that leaves everyone impressed and interested. The Sharks discuss the pros and cons of a traditional questionnaire and the method used by Nema AI and how the latter can be more effective for detection in children.

Afterwards, the founder discusses the revenue model and their profits. However, the Sharks realise that, because of its small scale, the product market fit has not happened yet and ask her why anyone would use their product instead of some other, well-established brand. After discussing the funding they have raised, the Sharks get into whether or not they will invest in the company. In the end, Namita and Vineeta decide to give a joint offer of Rs 40 Lakhs for 8% equity + Rs 40 Lakhs debt at 10% interest for 3 years, which the founder decides to take up.

In the Beyond the Tank segment of this episode, we look at season 2’s Janitri, a company in which Namita had invested, and how the startup has worked in helping expecting mothers keep an eye on their babies and giving them peace of mind.

MaplePods

Shark Tank India Season 3 Episode 41

Last but not least, we meet a tech hospitality startup that provides users with privacy for the special moments in their lives by providing various entertainment services using discarded vehicles and refurbishing them to create a luxurious and private pod space for dining, gaming and other facilities. The founder mentions that they are operational in 4 cities in India and 8 franchise orders will also be operational soon.

He mentions how the booking process works to help people get the ultimate choice and comfort and mentions how he wants to scale the business to bigger vehicles like planes etc. He asks for Rs 1.5 Crore investment in exchange for 5% equity in the company.

The Sharks first sit inside the pod and check out the interiors and are left impressed with the changes made. Later, the founder discusses how and why he went into the business, mentionng that although he wanted to do this in the airports, he rethought his business model and instead decided to open in different cities for easier access and control.

He mentions how he operates the different pods and how they are mentained, along with how they keep the products in different locations. Discussing revenue and how it is divided among everyone, the founder mentions what packages sell the most and who are using the pods on a day to day basis, along with the number of bookings on an average. However, the Sharks are unsure about the financials, scalability and the finesse of the pods. In the end, none of the Sharks give an offer and the founder leaves empty handed.

Shark Tank India Season 3 Episode 41 Review

A really enjoyable episode with three new concepts to enlighten us about the different needs of different people in India – episode 41 has been a treat because of the different startups with different people in mind. The theme of this episode seems to be helping people in different ways and the different flavours of that concept is a nice watch. While Katidhan promises to be a nice and calm way to help both animals and humans without endangering either, Nema AI is trying to understand different people and their different ways and promoting inclusion instead of trying to put everyone inside one box. Lastly, MaplePods brings forth India’s need of privacy and that sometimes everyone needs a place to relax and enjoy without the fear of others intruding on their privacy. It’s a great blend of innovation and a surprisingly calm episode without any fights!
