Newly funded startups and their (domain) names – week 16.

I am a bit late with this weeks report as I am working from Groningen, the Netherlands to meet with Efty co-founder Lionel and to catch up with family and friends. Funding activity was a bit slow this week as we saw 44 startups raise a combined 40+ million in seed and angel funding. We’re seeing quite a colorful mix of TLDs this week as .com “only” accounts for 68% of this weeks domain extension choices. COBI (which stands for connected bike) is the very first funded startup this year to use a .bike domain and the fourth company so far this year that uses a new gTLD for their website address. They picked up 4 million dollar in seed funding which also makes them the top fundraiser together with charity donating platform Pledgeling that uses the matching Pledging.com domain name. None of this weeks startups launched with a real premium domain but I personally quite like social video advertising platform Viralize.com

  1. Cobi.com is for rent/sell at Catchy.com
    We got many serious purchase requests but I do not remember this startup.
