Ex-participant Shark Tank India accuses Sharks of not responding after promising an investment: “More than 50% others faced the same or worse…”
Sony Entertainment Television’s Shark Tank India is one of the popular shows on Indian TV where aspiring entrepreneurs come to pitch their business ideas, and if they succeed in impressing the judges, they get a nice funding from them. But recently, a contestant named Akshay Shah made some crude allegations against the judges. Scroll down to see what he said.
Shah was one of the contestants in the first season, including the judges who were part of it Ashner Grover, Aman Gupta, Anupam Mittal, Ghazal Alagh, Namita Thapar, Peyush Bansal and Vineeta Singh. Now the former contestant has accused two of the judges of ghosting one of the pitchers. He is the founder and CEO of Search Engine Marketing [SEM] platform.
Akshay Shah, the founder and CEO of iWeb Techno, shared on his Twitter account that two sharks chased one of the founders he recently met after he secured an investment from them. Shah wrote: “Meet a founder yesterday who got a deal from 2 sharks in season 1 and never met him nor commented on his post #SharkTankIndia – Ab kya bolen?” It started a chain of conversations on the social media platform as people started voicing their opinions about it.
One of the users asked why that founder hasn’t exposed the judges since the show aired on national television; the user wrote, “Why hasn’t that founder exposed them yet?” Akshay Shah wrote in response, “Like I said, most of the founders fear, I am helpless 🙂 In Season 1, which we faced, more than 50% others faced the same or worse, with the result that Ashneer the door and sharks advised not to be rude and brash and considerate but no founder came out!Shah, who earlier beat up the creators of Shark Tank India for not airing his episode, further wrote: “We have faced similar nonsense too, but we came back stronger and not raising Shark Tank was a blessing in disguise. hota hai, keep walking & working, that’s what entrepreneurs are supposed to do!!”
