Mentoring Entrepreneurship TM

The Mentoring Entrepreneurship TM program was founded by Pink Shutter’s best, Tom Kanemoto and Lance Yabut, to help educate new and blossoming entrepreneurs. As experts in the photo booth and event business, you’ll be able to tap our knowledge base and connections for fast paced growth and even possible partnership opportunities.

Pitch your business, idea, or ask for expertise from someone who’s been in the Shark Tank. We’ll give you advice on starting or growing your own business, photo booths or not. We will guide you along the way and give you contacts to our preferred wholesale vendors and manufacturers.

Co-Founders Tom Kanemoto and Lance Yabut Headshots
Let Tom, Lance and their team of top business professionals and legal experts help show you how they turned a single photo booth into a inter-state phenomenon in less than 2 years and how you can apply their same principles.

Meet us face to face or by phone. Our mentoring program pairs entrepreneurs with experienced professionals for 20-minute sessions; pricing for sessions depends on the mentor, and will be sent by e-mail. Limited to qualified applicants.

A “start-up” bundle of 6 sessions can be purchased for $1000 – usually enough to help entrepreneurs get their feet off the ground, or for existing business create a successful plan for expansion or franchising.

Once accepted into the program you will have access to our appointment and price list. Time slots sell out quickly, because like you we still need time to run our own businesses.

Franchise Info

When Tom and Lance first entered the Shark Tank, Pink Shutter Photo Booths was only 1 year in the making and they were already pulling in more business than their staff could handle. Utilizing many hours of r&d they developed one of the easiest to deploy patent pending, portable photo booth companies anywhere.

How did they do it? A great balance of social media presence, low cost overhead, unique low to no-cost marketing, and one of the greatest, highest quality, portable photo booths in the nation.

Our business model is more profitable and scalable than almost any other event based service due to our proprietary design and marketing model. We’ve spent countless hours networking and making the right connections with partner companies across the nation. The entire experience is social media integrated, self-advertising and self-perpetuating. We also have active partnerships with nationwide corporations and wedding venues that will help grow your photo booth business with higher quality and in less time than another photo booth. We have our connections at Groupon, Living Social, Yelp, and Wedding Wire and others, saving you valuable time and getting you instant revenue before you have to service your first event.

Our patent-pending technology and design allows set up in blazing fast time (usually less than 5 minutes). The booth itself is unobtrusive, simple and will transport in any compact passenger car. (Go green! We recommend the Nissan Leaf or Toyota Prius)

What sets Pink Shutter apart is the support, backbone, and name recognition of quality and expertise. Those qualities gave Pink Shutter Photo Booths the opportunity to pitch to the Sharks on ABC’s episode 425 May 10, 2013.
