A promising Co-living spaces and Co-working spaces Startup from Sharktank

Published on July 4, 2016 by Maliha Javed


 A month ago, our team had the privilege to take part in the famous show called ABC’s shark tank. As many of you may already be aware of it, it is an American reality TV show that allows individuals across the country to showcase their ideas, projects or initiatives to a group of investors (sharks) who are willing to invest in them, only if they think it’s worthy enough. Believe it or not, you may get to encounter several bizarre ideas too that were able to convince these investors.

Our very own CEO and founder of Startupbnb, Qasim Naqvi had accepted the invitation to apply; and we were fortunate enough to have gotten selected. This had been a grand opportunity for our team indeed. Not only did we promote our business but altogether we got to learn greatly from the individuals around us of their sheer determination and brilliant initiatives.

According to Qasim, he defined his experience as:

“It was amazing to see people presenting their creative products. It was inspiring to see the level of creativity and determination amongst the individuals present at the pitch day. Learnt a lot about the show, the process, and had an opportunity to meet great people as well.”

Our CEO further went on to say :

“The most interesting part was getting to learn about people; their backgrounds, their passion for what they were doing, and their products which were truly interesting from every aspect. My favorite moment was the moment when I went to pitch in for Startupbnb with a Selfie video recording on.”

During the event we were  able to meet a truly inspirational figure, the first ever CTO of NYC, Minerva Tantoco. She most certainly possessed an inspiring persona that we all were in awe of. And amazingly she had clearly remembered our CEO Qasim as the #SelfieEntrepreneur from their first meeting previously.


Startupbnb like many other businesses had plenty to learn from this wonderful experience and who knows, some day you might just catch a glimpse of us live on the show!
