Shark Tank India’s Aman Gupta REVEALS He Shut Down 5 Companies Before BoAt; Says ‘Main Bohot Seekha Hun Apne Failures Se'
Shark Tank India’s Aman Gupta revealed he closed five companies before starting up the company BoAt!
BoAt co-founder Aman Gupta became a household name with his stint on the reality show Shark Tank India. He has returned with its second season and is currently seen judging the show with other popular entrepreneurs. Aman also had a fair share of struggles and downs before starting up the company BoAt. In a new interview, he spoke about his struggles and revealed he had shut down five companies. Aman also shared what makes him a successful businessperson today.
Speaking with Ranveer Allahbadia, he said, “Maine nahi socha, aur bas company start kar di. Confidence and over-confidence me fark aa jata hai. Badi team and badi office bhi liya, par competition bohot zyada tha. And office and team ko manage karne me mere dimag zyada jata tha rather than the business. So I learned that first make a good product other things will fall into place eventually. Aaj mera office is like college ki canteen, I have learned frugality.” ALSO READ: Shark Tank India 2: Aman Gupta Impressed By Dr Ashish Rawandale’s Guinness Book Of World Records; Says, ‘Doctor Sahab Aap Mahapurush Ho’
Talking about his dream of starting his company, Aman recalled boAt was established when he turned 36. “I started with dad at 23, and I learnt a lot of things. I think I should write a book called ‘What they don’t teach you at Indian business schools.’ Jo marketing seekh ke aate ho and jitna use karni padti hai, wo bohot alag hai. Jitna aap gir ke seekh sakte ho na, utna aap kisi aur cheez se nai seekhte, aur main bohot seekha hun apne failures se,” Gupta further stated.
Aman Gupta has joined Namita Thapar, Vineeta Singh, Amit Jain, Anupam Mittal and Peyush Bansal on Shark Tank India season 2. The show airs every Monday-Friday at 10 pm on Sony TV.
