Bengaluru-based Intervue an Interview-As-A-Service startup made a fiery pitch of their platform on the second episode of Shark Tank India Season 3. Co-founders Rahul Arora (Ludhiyana, Punjab) and Pushpendra Rautela (Gaziabad, UP) described how Intervue makes technical interviews of candidates a seamless process. It onboards senior engineers from FANG companies on the platform who grill potential candidates of prospect companies. The interviewers also earn for their services on the platform. The founders claimed that they have reduced the average 45 days for filling a single vacancy to 7 days. The pitchers stated that the interviews held in their portal are ‘instant, affordable, scalable, and standardized.’ The entrepreneurs asked Rs 1.5 crore at a mere 1 percent of equity!
Will they bag their desired funding? 💸

‘Baapre’ quipped Namita Thapar, even as all the sharks were taken aback at the ask. When Aman Gupta asked what is it even they actually do, the founders gave a quick walkthrough of how engineers from other companies conduct interviews at Intervue. The clientele list showed Zomato as well, which amused Deepinder Goyal, who asked if they were still their customers. The founders replied in the affirmative. During the demo, Anupam Mittal praised Rahul “yaar tu solid sales banda hai…amazing!” As the judges were impressed, Zomato’s Deepinder Goyal quipped, “Dedh karod se kya hoga tumhara?” Goyal pitched that he, along with boAt’s Aman Gupta, would invest Rs 5 crore for 10% equity. Aman clarified that he would infuse 1.5 crores and the rest is Zomato founders. Goyal remarked that “dus percent isliye cuz it has to be fun for us yaar.” When Rahul asked if any of the judges could meet their original cap, Anupam Mittal said, “yaar mere se toh naa ho payega!”
Even as all the sharks bailed out, Aman Gupta pitched his earlier offer, “last offer hai dedh karod do percent”. Even as the founders negotiated the deal, Deepinder Goyal advised them, “Bigger picture soch,long term soch, to maximize your chances ki billion dollar tak pahunche…abhi chindikhori mat kar. Get the right people on your side.” “Deal pakki” stated Rahul as they sealed the deal with Aman.
