Did you know, Ashneer Grover didn’t want to be a part of Shark Tank India at first. Here is why he said yes to the show.
In an interview with Raj Shamani for YouTube talk show Figuring Out, Ashneer Grover revealed how he was approached for Shark Tank India. “Sony had reached out to Venture Catalyst, an early-stage investor. The company had invested in BharatPe, and they received 80 times the amount as returns. So, Venture Catalyst gave Sony a list of 300 founders who were potential judges for the show that they could approach. After that, Sony did its own background research and then reached out to me.” He also revealed why he said yes to Shark Tank India.
“Since I didn’t watch Shark Tank, I did not have the craze to be a part of Shark Tank India. I was told that investing was a part of it and I said yes to the show. I had a very good conversation with the showrunner, Bimal (Unnikrishnan) and there was this mutual sense of comfort. I also wanted to know who the other judges were because it was critical for me to sit with the right set of people.”
