Missing the home run…

End of journey for grocery delivery startup Home Run

After 4 years of hard work, close to one million groceries delivered, and a few millions of pounds in venture funding, we decided to shut down operations at Home Run. I wanted to share the story, the struggles and the learnings which would hopefully shed some light to the industry and help other founders.
