Shark Tank India: This Startup By Siblings Selling Camping Gear Led To A Shark Fight

Adventure junkies, we know how you love camping, exploring hidden getaways and trekking across remote destinations. And if you’re an avid camper then you may often end up putting your life in danger by encountering wild animals in remote forests. Well, a sibling duo created a camping gear to protect you from harm during your expeditions. And it’s not just campers, even the sharks on Shark Tank India, who were mighty impressed with their product. Read on to know more.

Smart Stick Gadget For Campers Impresses Sharks On Shark Tank India

Siblings, Abhay Sharma and Smaritika came on Shark Tank India to present their adventure safety gadget. Their company, Kyari literally sells the world’s first smart stick for campers. This smart stick (costing ₹10,000) is equipped with flashlights, an SOS alarm and a taser to drive away wild animals. The torch helps campers trek in the night. The SOS alarm helps them to call out for help, especially when they encounter animals in the wild.

Abhay Sharma designed this product by drawing inspiration from his personal camping experiences. The entrepreneur once encountered a lion while camping. At that time, he froze and couldn’t even scream or call out for help. While the tiger didn’t harm him, he realised the dangers that campers also tread on. So, he designed this interesting gadget and created the startup, Smart Stick Guardian with his sister Smaritika.
