Life isn’t fair to everyone, but Sahil Pruthi transformed his stumbling block into a stepping stone. Sahil’s mother’s brain surgery led him to create his healthtech startup, Keto India and win highest offer on Shark Tank India.
On Shark Tank India, Sahil Pruthi received an offer of Rs 1.6 crore for his healthcare tech firm Keto India. This was the highest offer ever made on the show.
On Shark Tank India, Keto India creator Sahil Pruthi received a Rs 1.6 crore offer. Four of the five’sharks’ expressed interest in his healthcare technology firm, which was formed in 2018.
The show is the Indian equivalent of the popular US show Shark Tank, in which budding entrepreneurs present their company plans to a panel of investors.
Sahil rushed to Facebook to express his delight.
“Pitching on Shark Tank has been one of the wildest and best experiences I’ve ever had, and I’m really thrilled to be able to share the storey of what our rockstar team Keto India/Livofy has built! And having my mother there was wonderful.”
Sahil was motivated to start Keto India after his mother had serious brain surgery four years ago. For roughly nine months, he and his sister had to abandon their careers to care for her. However, the experience compelled him to use these months to improve his grasp of diet and health.
During his pitch, he told the sharks, “I wanted to know why this operation was required in the first place. And could we do anything to prevent it from getting to that point?”
Sahil provided his mother with a personalised dietary plan and supplements, as well as enrolling her in clinical studies to enhance her health.
He continued, “Four years have passed. My mum is OK and is here today.”
Panelists Ashneer Grover of BharatPe, Peeyush Bansal of Lenskart.com, Namita Thapar of Emcure Pharmaceuticals, and Aman Gupta of boAt all approved of Sahil’s pitch. However, he declined the offer since the ownership portion they requested was greater than Sahil’s offer of 1.25 percent.
Keto India said, “We received some useful input, and the sharks were enthralled by our company’s concept. The experience has been beyond incredible, and it has given us a tremendous opportunity to work on ourselves and scale the same in order to thrive in the business.”
