Zoff’s Zaykeydar Deal
The Spices market is massive in India spanning over 80,000 crores. However, there is expansive adulteration of spices with brick powder, cow dung, etc. Bringing innovation to the spice sector, Akash & Ashish Agrawal began Zoff in 2018. With unique zip-lock packaging, cool-grinding and roasting technology, and a 7-stage cleaning system, Zoff aims to become a top spice player in India. The products are available on its website & e-commerce marketplaces, over 10k retail stores, and HoReCa availability. With over 200 employees, they have 7 crores in last month’s sales with a projection profit of 5-6 crores in FY22-23.
Pitching for an investment of 1 crore for 0.5% equity @ a 200cr valuation, Zoff receives 4 offers from Sharks Anupam, Aman, Vineeta, and Amit. Choosing Aman’s revised offer of 1 crore for 1.25% equity @ an 80 cr valuation, the founders of Zoff seal a deal with Shark Aman.
Desi Toys Revives Classic Desi Games
Toys are an essential part of childhood. However, the toy industry is a cluttered market with too many players. Bringing nostalgic childhood toys and reviving classic toys, Desi Toys was started by Swapna Wagh in 2017. Understanding the vital role toys play in building skills, Desi Toys brings classic toys with a fresh look. The products are made in India, and provide employment to local artisans. With lab tested safe products, they are available on websites, e-commerce marketplaces, and retail stores such as Hamleys. They have sales of 1.15cr in FY21-22 with a projection of 2.5cr in FY22-23.
Asking the tank for an investment of 50L for 3% equity @ a 16.67 cr val, Desi Toys receive an offer of 20L for 20% equity & 30L debt from Shark Amit on the condition that they can expand the range to other products. However, the founder stood her ground and turned down the deal as she did not want to give up so much equity.
