"A new company called Lasso thinks it has found the perfect slice of the market to make same-day delivery work: Wine, spirits and specialty foods… [bringing] the goods to customers' doors within two hours of their order, for no additional charge… In a way, this is kind of like buying flowers online - where a local merchant fulfills what's chosen with what they have in stock."
"Lasso has raised $1.7 million in seed funding from investors including PivotNorth Capital, US Venture Partners, Baseline Ventures, Relevance Capital, Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, Ted Meisel, Lars Albright and Andy Miller."
"Procrastinating party throwers in San Francisco have options to toss together a soirée in short order. Let me restate that: You can have whiskey delivered all but into your glass without the need to put pants on. Launching today is a company called Lasso, which will deliver high-end meat, cheese, wine, and booze to your apartment in a few hours' time."
"Lasso is cheaper than Instacart when it comes to delivering your booze. For example, 1.75 liters of Jack Daniels… comes out to $50.31 on Instacart against $40.23 on Lasso."
