Patil, who runs a thriving snacks business, impressed the sharks Anupam Mittal, Vineeta Singh, Peyush Bansal, Aman Gupta and Namita Thapar with her fast growing idea. Geeta Patil’s company sells snacks by the brand name Patil Kaki and is fast growing in popularity. She revealed to the judges that she had started the business in 2017 with just Rs 5,000 which she took from her family. From then to now, she has sales of nearly Rs 3 crore.
The sharks were no doubt interested in the ambitious entrepreneur’s venture and decided to open the platform with their offers. Shark Aman Gupta pitched an investment offer of Rs 40 lakh for an equity ownership of 5 percent in Patil Kaki business. This offer values the business at Rs 8 crore. His offer was bettered by Anupam Mittal who offered the same amount of money for a percent equity less: Rs 40 lakh for 4 percent of Patil Kaki business.
However, Geeta Patil was in no mood to entertain just one shark and decided to come back with an idea saying she wants all the five sharks to become her partner. This prompted Mittal to say that roping in all sharks would mean a changed deal. Tense few moments followed as the promo left fans of the show engrossed and anxious about the fate of Patil Kaki pitch.
