Funds Raised

About The Show:

The Real Deal is the world's first impact investing TV show airing on the NDTV platform. NDTV is looking to find, feature and fund India’s best for-profit social enterprises because social entrepreneurs are The Real Deal! Indian and international high profile investors want to invest in India’s best for-profit social enterprises on the show. So, if you want to be on the show, if you want to get funded and if you think you are The Real Deal, then sign up and start a campaign right here on Ketto. 

“Your application for the show is incomplete without creating a campaign. Having a successful crowdfunding campaign will greatly improve your chances for getting on to the show. Proving to the investors, screeners and general public that you can raise funds shows you’re popular, your venture is trustworthy to the public, and viable. Your crowdfunding efforts will be weighted as one of the screening metrics for selection. Moreover, during the airing of show the audience will be encouraged to crowd fund all “The Real Deal” campaigns that are on this site. We at Ketto recommend placing an achievable 1 lac amount however you are free to set your ask as you wish.”
