Our mission: improve
quality of life for everyone
who needs medicine.

Health is the human condition. There’s nothing more important to each of us. One big problem with the healthcare industry: half of all prescriptions are never picked up, never make a milligram of impact. We started Alto to put healthcare in a better position to succeed, by building ever faster, friendlier ways to get medicine into the hands of people who need it.

Alto's Founding Story

A community pharmacy at heart.

Alto began as the beloved AG Pharmacy, which served San Francisco’s Mission District for over 30 years. The AG staff remains the heart of Alto, teaching the team what it means to be a caring community pharmacy.

A single Alto pharmacy can serve as many
people as 400 chain pharmacy locations.

"We've assembled pharmacy experts who know the industry inside and out and technologists who have built the most engaging experiences ever. We're tackling a critical part of people's lives that's full of potential for improvement. It's a powerful combination that inspires me daily."

Our efficiency allows us to reinvest in our patients.

We can stock more common and specialty medications. 218 types of birth control? We’ve got them all.

We make courier deliveries to each and every patient’s office or home, all for free.

Our pharmacy is continually getting smarter, as we build and acquire technology to improve the patient experience.

We’re lucky to have the best help a mission-driven company could ask for.

Our investors include Greenoaks Capital, Jackson Square Ventures, DST, Justin Kan (Y Combinator, Twitch), and Daniel Kan (Cruise).
