The Shark Tank format is a game-changer for startups, allowing them to jumpstart their growth without having to break the bank or invest heavily in building their infrastructure.
That means they're looking for entrepreneurs who have built something from scratch and run it successfully, not just people who want investors' money and don't know how to manage it.
Why startups are pitching at Shark Tank India
The Shark Tank India is a TV show that is aired on Sony and its OTT platform – Sony Liv. The show has been very successful in raising funds for startups from the shark investors in these startups. The investors - Anupam Mittal, Amit Jain, Vineeta Singh, Namita Thapar, Aman Gupta, and Peyush Bansal on this show are commonly referred to as “sharks” because they all want to invest their money in potential startups and act as mentors also for them.
The startup pitch at this program because it is one of the most popular shows in India today which will help promote your brand name and make it known throughout India as well as other parts of the world.
The program also provides many opportunities which allow the entrepreneurs to get some good exposure while also helping them raise some funds for their startup business venture which will help them grow faster.
Why Spokeherd is not on Shark Tank India
Spokeherd is a cycling community of passionate riders who are looking to take their passion to the next level. It is a powerful brand that engages and connects with riders across the country.
Spokeherd does not seek funding from investors to build our community. We do not need an infusion of cash from outside sources to grow our company. Instead, we rely on the community we've built up over the years—and that's why we don't want to be on Shark Tank India at all.
“We believe that entrepreneurs should be judged by their ability to achieve success through hard work alone—not by how much money they have or what kind of connections they have with people who can help them get things done. We believe that people should be rewarded for being good at what they do and being helpful to others around them.” – Mr. Ajay Vadhvani, Founder - Spokeherd
We believe in people working together rather than competing against each other—and that's why we're here!
Spokeherd – The cycling Community
Spokeherd is a community-based buying platform that enables people to be a part of this. The founder of Spokeherd Mr. Ajay Vadhvani, a cycling and fitness enthusiast is a Shark itself, who has single-handled invested more than 3cr in this community-based platform.
As the world becomes more and more connected, it's important to make sure that everyone has access to the same opportunities. You can rent bikes through Spokeherd for as long as you need them and don't mind paying for them at the end of your rental period. This allows for easy re-use of your bike which reduces waste and cuts down on transportation costs.
As far as products go, we offer both our Spokeherd brands and also many domestic and multinational brands of bikes and gear along with products from other companies that work well with our platform. We believe in giving people the opportunity to discover what works best for them while creating a community where everyone can feel safe and comfortable while using our products at either home or on the go!
The platform also benefits from its own product line—Spokeherd's products for community use—which means that if you want to get involved in cycling but don't want to do so independently, then this is the platform for you! You'll be able to find all kinds of great deals on equipment (including those by Spokeherd). And with member discounts galore, it's never been easier than it is right now!
Our memberships include various benefits such as discounts on purchases and access to our community stores where users can find accessories such as helmets and clothing and can opt for various biking events across the country.
One of the most important aspects of Spokeherd is the store and café at Jim Corbett. The store is open to anyone who visits the platform, regardless of whether they bought anything there or not. They can use them as a place to meet up with other cyclists shop for accessories or parts, can rent cycles, or enjoy the freshest assortment of food and drinks at the cafe.
You can also use it as a place where people can post photos or videos from their rides on Spokeherd. This is a great way for people who love cycling to connect with others in their area, and it's why we think cycling is so popular!
The best part about Spokeherd is that all transactions are peer-to-peer—so no middleman takes anything off the table! Our goal isn't just to create a place where people can go to find out about different types of bikes and accessories; we want to create a community where people can talk to each other about encouraging conversation and sharing experiences around cycling.
