“Bharat Badal Raha Hai”, Innovations from chai stalls to mental healthcare

 7 months ago    

Mahantam, Mindpeers, and Barosi pitch their innovations to the Sharks. On one hand, Mahantam cracks an all-5-shark deal, and on the other Mindpeers, a 4-shark deal for their products!

Mahantam cracks an All-5-Shark Deal with their products!

Tea is India’s beloved drink. With tea stalls spanning the whole of India, vendors primarily opt for plastic cups or tea glasses. These are not environmentally safe or hygienic. To solve this pain point while also keeping the love of tea alive, Dhaval & Jayesh Nai started Mahantam. Mahantam, an early-stage startup brings us a tea glass washing machine. With a compact, simple design, the machine can wash up to 12-15 glasses in 30 seconds. Additionally, the founders dream to bring this washing machine to every tea stall across India to ensure hygienic tea service. Having sold 3 machines in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Maharastra, the machine cleans 10L glasses for Rs. 9 worth of electricity. Mahantam machine can wash 250 glasses with 38 liters of water.

Mindpeers Steers The Way To Better Mental Health

Mental health wellness which at one point was assumed as a taboo topic, today has evolved into a pressing issue. Since Covid, people have begun focusing on their mental health issues, anxiety, and insomnia, among others. However, there is still a factor of stigma in society when it comes to seeking treatment. To build widespread awareness in society and eliminate the stigma relating to mental health care, Kanika Agarwal & Sahil Chitkara started Mindpeers. It is an AI-powered platform that helps in building your mental health proactively and assesses your current status. Their proprietary algorithm helps in measuring aspects of your life and gives you a score as to the impact.

With in-house neuroscience games, and habit-building and changing tools, Mindpeers aims to engage its users to track their issues. Additionally, they also have a mind peers community or a support group where the users can vent out anonymously as well to psychologists. They have over 3.5L users and have been expanding to Singapore, the UK, and the US. Having previously raised Rs. 1.12 cr @ a 33.75cr valuation, they have 16.5L in monthly revenue. Following a subscription model, it costs Rs. 350 monthly and has 3500 customers so far.
