PocketPawns is a pawn management application designed with the customer in mind and for pawnbrokers to run their locations more efficiently. The founder Marcus Ford first pitched the idea for the application at the 2012 Startup Weekend in Spokane, WA during the month of September. Ultimately he was one of the winners and move on to gain mentorship and investment to take PocketPawns from the minors to the major league. They are currently in the first round of investments looking to raise capital to build out the website and mobile application along with marketing to pawnbrokers and their shops.
