News/Market ~ Instatruck was initially self funded, and then had some angel investment.

Among the markets they are pursuing are: (i) businesses that need their goods transported immediately; and (ii) the largely untapped market for individuals who want their goods delivered at the time of their choosing. The market for inner-city transportation of goods in Australia is $8.5 billion.
