Aria Hahn grew up in Okanagan, in British Columbia, Canada. She’s always been on the entrepreneurial train, though at times she says she may not have known it. She started out studying business – but hated it. She eventually went into grad school (cause she wasn’t ready to work full time). By the end of grad school and a small stint in teaching, she pursued her PhD in Genomix. When she observed the folks in the dry lab pasting thousands of lines of code, she was intrigued by computer science.
Having some experience with grants, Aria and her co-founder took some friends who were business owners out for drinks. When their platform idea and grant acquisition capabilities were challenged, they took action and secured a large amount of grant money… directly from the bar.
This is the creation story of Pocketed.
