The show ‘Shark Tank India’ has emphasized the increasing tide of entrepreneurship in India
Sony Entertainment Television’s non-fiction offering ‘Shark Tank India’ has given a boost to the start-up revolution in India. The show has no doubt fueled a start-up boom for Indian women. Women who never used to talk about business are now feeling interested to join in and give their opinions on business ideas during family gatherings or friendly meetings. The show has emphasized the increasing tide of entrepreneurship that can be found in every corner of the country.
The first Indian edition of the globally renowned business reality format has given many budding entrepreneurs the boost to make it big, all it took was one perfect pitch to impress the sharks. Celebrating entrepreneurship, the first season of the show not only witnessed some innovative business ideas but also saw participation from women entrepreneurs whose dreams were defined by their ambition to succeed in their chosen fields of business. While all the Sharks were awestruck by their ideas, Sharks Namita Thapar, Vineeta Singh, and Ghazal Alagh were the flag bearers of cheering on their fellow women entrepreneurs.
Numerous women came on the show, even if it was to accompany the men, who were handling the business operations. Also, many teams were formed by women, led by women, and managed to inspire other women to not think of the business field as a man’s world.
Namita Thapar said that she came up with the cause of supporting women entrepreneurs. “I am glad I could do that in a balanced way.” She also said that as an investor, supporting causes more than spending money-minting ideas was an achievement for her. “As leaders and influencers, we need to send that message. We need to champion good causes so that many others get inspired in return.”
