Head and Heart on Shark Tank India
This company was founded in 2015 by Mr Singh. His pitch on the show was part of the 2nd episode in the first season.
Here are the key details about their pitch on Shark Tank India:
|Business Name||Head and Heart|
|Episode no.||Season 01 Episode 02|
|Ask||₹50 Lakhs for 5% equity|
|Accepted Offer||NO DEAL|
Head and Heart is an educational company that provides professional brain development courses to enhance their mental capabilities.
They have trained more than 5,000 people till now, mostly students. His course is also now part of the Himachal Education Board, showing that his course is getting successful results.
But he mainly operates a franchise business model where he trains other people to start their own journey in this field.
Mr Singh asked ₹50 lakhs for funding in exchange for 5% shares.
He demonstrated the results with the help of his daughter Mehac and Chehac. While all the sharks were surprised by the performance, many then questioned the scalability of the business and practical benefits in real life.
Aman was also worried that some big company like UpGrad or BYJU’S can easily replicate their business if they become successful.
That’s why sharks Aman, Ashneer and Anupam went out very early. Namita was also not interested in investing but she advised him to apply his knowledge in the corporate world, where he will get tangible proof that his work has some real advantages as well.
In the end, the Singh family left the tank with no deal.
