Pinguin is the app for LA’s startup community and we wouldn’t be anything without the companies that are bringing such great talent here to Silicon Beach. That’s why we will be highlighting some of our favorite LA tech companies every week for you to check out. This week’s batch includes a better way to buy movie tickets, alcohol delivered to your doorstep and a rental car delivered to wherever you are. (Don’t use those ones at the same time)
Here are the LA startups of the week that you absolutely have to try!
Skurt is a rental car delivery startup based in LA. Customers can request a rental directly from the app and have it delivered in 60 minutes or less. No need to return the car, Skurt will pick it up wherever you are once you’re done. Skurt is doing everything that traditional rental companies aren’t and that’s why they’re winning the millennial market. Renters only need to be 21 while most companies require renters to be 25 or above. Skurt gives unlimited mileage with every rental and you can get a car for the entire day for as low as $21. Skurt is currently available in LA, San Diego and Miami. Check them out today. https://www.skurt.com/
Saucey made some noise in the press this week as they partnered with Channing Tatum and had him deliver alcohol to unsuspecting customers in LA. While Channing Tatum probably won’t be your delivery guy this time around, we can’t deny the convenience of Saucey. Shop your favorite alcohol and get it delivered directly from the app. https://www.saucey.com/
It’s certainly fitting that a company aiming to change the movie ticket industry was started right here in LA. The app helps sell unpurchased tickets to theaters nationwide by making it easier for users to organize groups and decide on showtimes. It also allows users to order your concessions in advance with exclusive offers. https://www.atomtickets.com/
