Although the Indian adaptation of the American reality show ‘Shark Tank India’ got wrapped up, still the show is making headlines for one or another reason. The show that aired with the concept to give a platform to budding entrepreneurs was massively loved by the audiences and became a household name in no time. As we speak of this, one of the Sharks from the show, Namita Thapar recently opened up about a deal she regrets losing to Ashneer Grover.
The executive director of Emcure Pharmaceuticals, in interaction with Rohan Joshi for his YouTube show, recalled a deal she missed during the show. Speaking about the deal nabbed by Ashneer, Namita shared, “I regretted missing out on the TagZ deal--the popped, the chips with the healthy angle to it, the dip which was delicious. We really fought hard for it and we lost by like .25%. But then the three or four deals that I lost out but after the show got done I got in touch with them and invested in them. So no regrets anymore.” ALSO READ: Shark Tank India's Aman Gupta Shares Reason Why He Wore Same 'boAt' T-shirt, 'Everyone Starts With Nothing'; Recommends Young Entrepreneurs To Do THIS
However after the show got wrapped up, she approached the TagZ company and invested in them. For the unversed, Ashneer Grover countered the offer to TagZ and offered them 75 lakhs for 3.5 percent.
Speaking about the snack-based company TagZ, earlier this year the company announced that they raised funding from both Ashneer and Namita. As quoted by the Hindu Business line, Namita said, “I am personally passionate about healthy snacking and through Emcure bring healthcare expertise and networks to any company I associate with. TagZ is a brilliant brand that balances fitter snacking options without compromising on taste and I am excited to help them scale in India and globally.”
