79 newly funded startups and their domain names: Exclaimer.com, Virteo.com, Pepo.com

A cool $427,869,570 in funding was raised by 79 startup companies last week. More than 63% of them launched using a .com domain name followed by the ccTLDs with a solid 17% of the action. We have three startups that went with a new domain extension: Transportation startup Hyperloop Transportation Technologies which raised $30m in funding is using Hyperloop.global and both software development company Jinn Inc and on demand IoT maintenance support platform MapSit Technologies went with a .tech domain.

Some domains I like this week include those of New York-based email software business Exclaimer which owns the matching .com domain (and a large number of matching ccTLD). I also like Belgium-based exchange and management platform Virteo as an example of a good invented name. The Virteo.com domain name sold for a very modest $1,050 at Uniregistry in 2015. Last but not least there’s social messaging platform Pepo. It is a new startup headed by Jason Goldberg, a founder that is most known for previous high-profile startups such as Fab.com and Hem.com. Jason clearly has a good taste when it comes to domain names as he managed to get his hands on the matching Pepo.com domain name for his newest venture.

One thought on “79 newly funded startups and their domain names: Exclaimer.com, Virteo.com, Pepo.com

  1. I am from Glasgow in UK. Bar Soba have been going for years from originally having 1 then 2 bars/restaurants so wouldn’t call them a start up. They have expanded greatly in the recent years and now have several venues. Pretty sure they’ve also had the domain name BarSoba.co.uk for a while.

    That said I guess they must be expanding further still with that amount of funding.
