Expressing views on his experience at Shark Tank India S2, Siddharth Dungarwal, Founder and CEO, Snitch, stated, “It was incredible to be on one of the best and top-rated entrepreneurial shows, and it was highly insightful to meet business leaders like sharks there. It was more towards the value these sharks would get rather than chasing valuation. I was very much sure that either I’m gonna take all five or none. That was something in the back of my mind, and I made it very clear from the start of the pitch itself. Each one of them has different expertise and holds some amazing industrial experience. We will together set up new benchmarks in the industry with this collaboration.”
