$981,611,640 was raised by 84 newly funded startups last week. Ecological Service Partners led the funding round by raising $250M in Venture funding. This ecological restoration company seeks to revitalize the habitats of various animal species. Of the 84 startups, 60 of them used a .com domain, while 18 of them chose a country-code top level domain. Thereafter, we have one .biz, one .net, two .org domains, and two new generic top level domains (a .academy and a .space).
The best domain on our list is Intersection.com, a domain first registered in 1997. Intersection secured a cool $150M in Venture funding, and is a company that “connects the physical world to the digital world in urban environments.” That is, they provide services like free wifi in cities. Next, we have CloudSense.com , which is the internet home of the British-based cloud software and service provider. Honestly, ‘Cloud Sense’ is definitely not the best ‘cloud’ domain out there, but works alright for this company. Finally, we have BrokerGenius.com, belonging to a New York based company that built a platform to help the ‘middle men’ in ticket sales. The name ‘broker genius’ is a decent brandable domain, as we’ve seen other domain names ending with ‘genius’ sell for up to $20K in the last couple of years (MoneyGenius.com)
