Digital pharmacy startup ScriptDash got a new name this week, along with $23 million in Series B financing. The San-Fransisco-based startup will now go by Alto to reflect its intention to go beyond just delivery.
“We started ScriptDash to simplify the pharmacy experience for those in need. Over the past two years, it’s been our privilege to serve the San Francisco Bay Area community. We’ve learned a lot about what it means to provide you with the world-class care you deserve. In that time, we also began to feel that we had a larger story to tell than just a pharmacy that delivers. Our new name, Alto, better embodies our company’s mission to build the world’s most patient-centric pharmacy.” co-founder Mattieu Gamache-Asselin writes in the company blog announcing the news of the name change.
Alto has raised $29 million dollars in funding to date and has delivered more than 100,000 prescriptions to 12,000 patients living in the San Francisco Bay Area since launching in June of 2015. It is good news to see startups with healthy traction and financial backing such as ScriptDash rebrand and upgrade to a premium domain name to fuel expansion and ambition.
The Alto.com domain name was first registered in 1995 but doesn’t have much of a history as a developed website judging by the lack of captures for the domain name on Archive.org over the past decades. According to DomainIQ the domain name was most recently owned by a French corporation that goes by the name of LYNX ALTO and the domain name was transferred to ScriptDash in late May this year.
