Julie and Brian Whiteman pitch their instant photo book app called GrooveBook in episode 515 on January 10. The couple created the app to allow people to create photo books from their smart phone photos without thinking. Once you download GrooveBook, the app automatically prints a photo book from all your smart phone pictures each month and mails them to you for a $2.99 per month shipping/subscription fee.
The app prints photos on the 12th of the month, so there may be repeats, the max is 100 photos. You can order multiple books and you can set up photos on your computer to synch with your smart phone so they’ll print every month. You can skip a month or cancel at any time. Other than ordering extra prints and books, the $2.99 per month covers you each month.
The Whiteman’s are likely looking for strategic partners and some cash from the Sharks.
GrooveBook Shark Tank Recap
Julie and Brian will pitch the panel of five Sharks on their business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Lori Grenier, Kevin O’Leary, Daymond John, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on GrooveBook will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
