The founder asked for ₹60 lakhs from the sharks for a 2% stake in their business.
They have created an algorithm that will determine the most suitable bat for you, out of the 17 different types they have. They also get data from their live training center to give the best recommendation to the customer.
The pitchers also organized a small training pitch on the shark tank set corridor. Aman tested it himself. Still, he didn’t offer because the market is more towards amateur players and not big league cricketers.
The sales were also a bit low, only ₹30 lakhs for FY 2021-22, with cash burning right now. Even the pitcher was confused about the number. That’s left Anupam not investing in it.
Namita thought the market size is not that big and Peyush just recommended tying up with Decathlon to provide the live experience in their store.

Z Sports Tech didn’t get any offer on Shark Tank India.
