Stocket®’s mission is to be the first company to combine fun mobile game experiences with e-commerce shopping: our patent-pending mobile app lets players shop, sell, and earn cash back, while introducing a unique opportunity for retailers worldwide to reach socially engaged consumers.
The original idea was to create a social couponing app, but our innovative team was looking to reinvent the mobile shopping experience in more ways than one. The “aha” moment came when we discovered that people who play mobile games also shop on their phones, so how fun would it be to combine the two?
Leveraging the power of social behavior and peer-to-peer influence to spread coupons and deals, our idea evolved into a game-commerce app that we named Stocket®. A hybrid of fun mobile game experiences and e-commerce, Stocket® lets players create their own store, stock it with real products from over 1,600 top brands, and make sales (both virtual and real) to earn cash back and prizes.
Led by CEO Jace Simmons, the Stocket® team is built around e-commerce, augmented reality and mobile gaming experts focused on creating innovative e-commerce solutions. In 2014 the company acquired the augmented reality technology of ARrival Labs, and has received cloud server grants from Google and Microsoft. To date, Stocket® has raised over $10 million and is in the process of starting its second round of funding.
