Shark Tank India Season 2 has been a roller coaster ride for budding entrepreneurs who’ve been brave enough to take the plunge and showcase their business ideas to the panel of ‘sharks’. The show has seen many interesting ideas come and go, but the most impressive of them all have been the ones that have managed to bag an “all-shark” deal.

An “all-shark” deal is a rare occurrence in the show, where all the five ‘sharks’ on the panel – Amit Jain, Peyush Bansal, Namita Thapar, Aman Gupta, Vineeta Singh and Anupam Mittal – come together to invest in an idea. This means that all the ‘sharks’ are equally interested in the business idea and are willing to put their money where their mouth is. 

So, let’s have a look at the brands that got “all-shark” deals.

Snitch

In the January 27 episode of Shark Tank India Season 2, we witnessed all five Sharks coming together for the first time in the season to invest in a garment brand. Siddharth Dungarwal, the founder of the brand, called his brand ‘India’s fastest-growing fashion brand for men’. And revealed how his brand, Snitch was the first one to launch coord sets for men. The Sharks were impressed by Siddharth’s presentation and hence offered him an all-shark deal.

Siddharth Dungarwal, CEO of Snitch stated, “It was more towards the value these sharks would get rather than chasing valuation. I was sure that either I’m gonna take all 5 or none. That was something in the back of my mind, and I made it very clear from the start of the pitch itself. Each one of them has different expertise and holds some amazing industrial experience. We will together set up new benchmarks in the industry with this collaboration.” 

Snitch raised- Rs. 1.5 crores for 0.5% equity
Final deal- Rs. 1.5 crores for 1.5% equity

Mahantam

Recently in the episode of 9th February, entrepreneurs of Mahantam- Dhaval and Jayesh Nai presented a unique concept of a tea glass washing machine. This unique concept was presented to the ‘sharks’ with a hot cup of tea. And they highlighted the fact that hygiene is a major concern in tea stalls, and it is a time-consuming task for vendors to clean and sanitize the tea glasses after every use.

Impressed with the concept, Anupam Mittal said ‘Bharat business seekh raha hai’ and revealed his Dreamdeal.me project. Through it, entrepreneurs can make a one-minute Reel and share their business ideas. Selected best ideas get grants from Anupam’s team without taking any equity. Entrepreneurs Dhaval & Jayesh, who met Anupam earlier through Dreamdeal.me, used the grant money to upgrade the design presented on Shark Tank India.

In the first season of Shark Tank also some pitchers were lucky enough to receive an all-shark deals. So, let’s have a look at some of them too.
