Anupam Mittal – Founder of (Shark)

He agrees that Millineals of the new generations are looking for everyday jewelry in silver/gold. Their product and finish is very good and they should make a jewelry ring in which engagement rings will automatically sell and brand value will also build simultaneously.  Anupam does not feel that they are ready for the products so he is out.
Anupam also watched the other jewelry product.

Ashneer Grover- Founder of BharatPe (Shark)

Jewelry is a category which is a high category and the new project being tried by the founders is half baked. Ashneer explained how they are doing a trial that if they get funding for their new business so they will dedicate less time to their old business which will not be possible. For this reason, he is out.

Namita Thapar- Executive Director at Emcure Pharmaceuticals (Shark)

She said that their pitch was started by lifetime proposals, then as you change your girlfriend for valentine products and then it moved to other jewelry products. Namita is unable to understand the value proposition that’s why she is out from pitch.

Aman Gupta- Co-Founder and CMO- boAt Headphones (Shark)
