Peyush and Anupam asked for a demo of their older products, and Manoj invited Vineeta to come for the demonstration.

Vineeta tried red lipstick in a virtual demonstration. While demonstration, Vineeta was really impressed with the feature.

Aman Gupta was also impressed with the features because other beauty software doesn’t give results with that perfection.

All the sharks praised their technology, and then Anupam asked about the founder’s background.

Manoj Shinde said that he worked for Adidas as a global business transformation in the USA. In 2012, Reliance Retailed hired him as the e-commerce head. Then, he founded a computer startup called Branfee, which they shut down and started Orbo AI.

Aman also wanted to know about Abhit Sinha and Danish Jamil’s backgrounds. Danish said that me and Abhit has completed a master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence (AI) from Delhi Technological University (DTU).

Anupam Mittal asked about the equity split of the company.

Manoj said that he holds 33% equity. Abhit and Danish have 5% each, and the remaining 57% belongs to ESOPs and investors.

Aman asked about the previous fundraising, and Manoj said that we had raised ₹11 crores at ₹55 crore post-money valuation in 2020 and ₹6 crore at ₹93 crore valuation in 2022.

Till now, they have raised ₹26 crores, and their monthly expense is approximately ₹48 lakh, and revenue is ₹18 lakh per month.

After that, Peyush enquired about the pricing of the product, and Manoj said it was ₹30,000/month.

Peyush said that a retail store requires at least 2 mirrors, and no retail store will spend ₹60,000/month on this.

Immediately, Manoj said that bigger brands like Tata, Shopper Stop, and LAKME Salon are on board, and we are deploying a minimum of 800 mirrors with these brands.

Anupam believes that there is some issue in his business model and he went out of the deal.

boAt founder Aman said that there is no sense in making ₹16 crores worth of business after raising ₹30 crores, so he is out.

InShort founder Azhar Iqubal said that his views are almost similar to Aman’s, and he decided not to invest in Orbo.
