84 newly funded startups and their domain names: UpCloud.com, WorkVenture.com, Ytel.com

A whopping $454,072,977 in funding was raised by 84 new startup companies last week. More than 69% of them launched with a .com domain for their address on the web followed by the ccTLDs with a solid 20% of the pie this week.  There’s just one startup that chose one of the new domains: Bengaluru-based emotion recognition startup Entropik has raised $200K in Seed funding from a group of angels and launched on a .space domain name. The company makes software that helps app developers track the emotions and context of their users on the basis of data from their smartphone.

Domain names I like this week are from Helsinki-based cloud hosting company UpCloud which uses the matching UpCloud.com, a domain name they purchased for $100,000 in 2011 at GoDaddy. I also like WorkVenture, a Thailand-based recruiting platform that raised US$420K to match jobseekers to the right jobs using an algorithm. Last but not least, there’s Ytel Inc, a California-based software company that helps businesses communicate to customers and leads by phone, text message, email and direct mail. They own the matching Ytel.com domain name.
