Shark Tank India, the Indian adaptation of the popular reality show, has emerged as a transformative platform for entrepreneurs. It provides a stage for startups to pitch their ideas to a panel of successful investors – the “Sharks” – and secure funding to take their ventures to the next level. In the healthcare sector, several innovative companies leveraged this platform to gain crucial financial backing and make a positive impact on people’s lives.


Medulance: Saving Lives, One Ambulance Ride at a Time

Born from a personal tragedy, Medulance emerged with a mission to provide reliable and efficient emergency response services across India. The pitch by its co -founders Ravjot Singh Arora and Pranav Bajaj secured a monumental and largest-ever deal of Rs 5 crore for 5% equity on Shark Tank India Season 2 with Sharks Namita Thapar, Aman Gupta, and Peyush Bansal. This allowed them to expand their reach to more cities and further strengthen their technological infrastructure. The funding translated to achieving faster response times and improved medical care for people in critical situations. Today, Medulance boasts a fleet of over 10,000 ambulances operational across the nation, a testament to their growth and impact.


What’s Up Wellness: Gummy Vitamins Making Wellness Fun

Vaibhav Makhija and Sayantani Mandal of What’s Up Wellness brought a refreshing twist to the health supplement industry with their gummy vitamins. Appealing to a younger audience seeking convenient and enjoyable ways to address everyday needs like sleep, beauty, and stress management, they impressed a trio of Sharks – Aman Gupta, Anupam Mittal, and Vineeta Singh – on Shark Tank India Season 2. They secured a Rs 60 lakh investment that fueled their production and marketing efforts, making their innovative gummy supplements more accessible to a wider consumer base.


Keto India: Personalized Plans for a Healthier You

While Keto India, a platform offering personalized care solutions for chronic conditions, ultimately declined investment offers on Shark Tank India Season 1, their appearance highlighted a growing trend in healthcare – a shift towards customized wellness plans. Keto India focuses on conditions like diabetes, PCOS, and weight management, creating keto diet plans tailored to individual needs. Their participation in the show generated significant buzz and helped establish them as a leader in the personalized wellness space.


DigiQure: Bridging the Gap in Rural Healthcare

DigiQure tackles the challenge of limited access to medical services in rural India. Their solution? Telemedicine – connecting patients in remote areas with qualified doctors in urban centers. They also offer additional services like digital prescriptions, medicine delivery, and lab services. One of its cofounders, Akanksh Tandon, pitched on Shark Tank India Season 2. Despite initial skepticism from some Sharks regarding the startup’s sustainability, DigiQure’s innovative approach convinced Namita Thapar to invest ₹40 lakh for 10% equity. This investment was instrumental in expanding DigiQure’s reach and bringing much-needed healthcare services to underserved rural communities.


NeoMotion: Empowering Mobility with Tech-Driven Wheelchairs

NeoMotion stands out by designing customized wheelchairs using advanced technology, catering to the specific needs of over 1.5 crore people in India. Their unique pitch on Shark Tank India Season 2 landed them a deal with Peyush Bansal. The investment of 1 crore rupees for 1% equity, along with a profit-sharing clause, provided the resources needed to further develop their innovative wheelchairs and expand their production capacity. This allowed NeoMotion to make a positive impact on the lives of more and more differently-abled people.


The success stories of these healthcare startups on Shark Tank India demonstrated the show’s potential to propel innovative ideas forward. With the right investment and exposure, these ventures revolutionized the healthcare landscape in India, making it more accessible, efficient, and personalized for everyone.
