Mumbai : Following a much-anticipated debut on Shark Tank’s Season 3, upliance.ai, the creators of the very first designed, built, and made-in-India AI Cooking Assistant, are set for an ambitious 2024.

Despite declining an offer from Peyush Bansal, CEO of Lenskart, upliance.ai effectively demonstrated their innovation at the show.

The global smart kitchen appliances market, valued at $18.75 billion in 2023, is projected to grow at a CAGR of 17.9% from 2024 to 2030. This growth is fueled by factors like the rise in single-person households, increased disposable income, smart home adoption, online purchases of small household appliances, and the growing demand for smart and connected home appliances. These trends are particularly relevant in India, given its youthful population and growing middle class. Recognising this, upliance.ai developed a device catering to diverse demographics, achieving remarkable sales in 2023, selling out its stock by August with nearly zero marketing expenses.

Notably, August 2023 revenue reached ₹26,00,000, reflecting an Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) exceeding ₹3 Crore – all of this within just 8 months of beginning deliveries.

Co-founders Mahek Mody and Mohit Sharma commented on their experience on the TV show and said,“We are grateful for the Shark Tank journey. It served as an exceptional platform, allowing us to showcase upliance on a national platform. With upliance.ai already selling out through positive word of mouth, we anticipate a substantial surge post-show, leveraging newfound exposure and our owners’ community to grow in the coming year. As we reflect on the market response, we are extremely proud that 60% of our sales have been driven by our existing owners who are passionate about what we are building and believe in our vision of the future of Indian homes. Peyush Bansal’s offer goes beyond mere endorsement for us; it symbolises recognition of our product’s value and potential by a respected business leader, fortifying our position as innovators in the smart kitchen industry.”
