The startup laundry express has been shut down after a year of operation.
The company had launched in January 2016, but closed its doors in April 2018.
In a statement, the company said the closure was a result of the growing pains of working in the fast-changing tech industry.
“The industry is rapidly evolving and as a result, we needed to focus our energies on new and exciting opportunities,” the company wrote.
The founder, Laura Hines, told the San Francisco Chronicle that she has been unable to find a job as a consultant, and that she’s currently working as a web developer for a company that helps businesses get started in the industry.
Hines told the paper that she did not have a severance package, but was not sure what she would be able to do after the shutdown.
