Beyond Snack Ask from the Sharks in Shark Tank India
50 Lakhs for 2.5 %, valuation – 20 Crores
Discussion: Did Beyond Snack Get Funding from the Sharks at Shark Tank India?
Manas was not happy with his 9-5 job and once he got to know that 40% of banana crop is wasted, he wanted to build something around this.
Manas started off the conversation with his previous sales and said that within 1.5 years, they sold 140 metric tons of banana chips.
Piyush asks– Is the quality special or can it be cracked? Any good food scientist can make it right?
Manas was firm with his response and said that it is very easy for him to become a national brand in 2 years, a 100 Crore company. There are so many local brands like Balaji and Haldirams that have banana chips, but that’s not an exclusive product, they have many namkeens and snacks.
When we think of Lays, potato chips are what pops into our mind. Similarly, he wants his brand to be a synonym with banana chips. A soft and quality chips which is easy to byte and thinner in precision.
Anupam is passionate about the products and asks how much money was invested?
70 lakhs. Manas’s father also invested and monthly sales is 20.6 lakhs.
Ashneer then questioned the high pricing of Rs 60 and asked to make it Rs 30 as its a fast moving snack.
Manas said that he is also launching a Rs 30 pack and if they like they will buy Rs 60 also. Gross margin is 55% and retail 48 % with 100 % ownership. He wants to expand his market to Mumbai and then the entire Maharashtra, Gujrat and Delhi. 70 % of the sales are happening from North India.
Anupam says- Profit 60 lakh sales and 6 lakh profit annual. Can you take your gross margin to 70% and how?
Yes, it's possible with proper optimization.
Ashneer loves the brand but says that Manas has communication problems, so he wants to help Beyond Snack become a brand.

Motion Breeze EV ask from the Sharks in Shark Tank India
30 lakh for 3 %, valuation 10
Discussion: Did Motion Breeze EV get Funding from the Sharks at Shark Tank India?
Anupam asked Investor Deepenbhai- What’s the reason to invest?
This is a multi-brand 2 wheeler servicing company with 180 outlets across India. He saw potential and helped them. He invested 35 lakhs and got 27 % equity.
Namita asked - There are so many big players like Hero, Enfield etc. Why do you want to combine all 4 in one?
Just to give extra comfort as per need. Driving in the same posture has harmful effects on the long run and can lead to accidents. So to break the monotony, they are offering 4 settings in one bike.
Anupam priced the bike for 1.5 to 3.5 lakhs and asked how to compete with upper segment bike brands?
Moto influencers can touch and test products at 180 service points and feel the difference.
Namita - 4 in 1 is confusing, so I’m out.
Aman – Big players are already in this segment and product is not good, so I am out.
Anupam – I am out as, your pricing factor and brand positioning is not good enough.
Peyush-I am out as it’s an early stage
Ashneer – Frame structure and actuators are patented and battery designs patented. Production unit Baroda. We have a investor and with ur money. Certification
He is not just investor, I am also mentor.
