60 newly funded startups and their domain names: Pugz.com, Indi.com, Zently.com

Funding activity was up significantly from last week as we tracked 60 startup companies raise $316,683,520 in venture funding. Just over 65% of these startup companies launched with a .com address with the ccTLD coming in as a distant second again around 20%. The new extensions have two entries on the list this week with one .Exchange and a .Work

Not many domains jumped out to me this week but some name + domain name combos that I kind of like are those of wireless earphones maker Pugz which sells it’s products directly from the matching Pugz.com domain. The best name on the list by miles is that of California-based Indi which is an engagement commerce video platform for brands operating from the very nice indi.com domain name which sold for $22,300 in 2007 on SnapNames and then a few years later for a nice $115,000 via DomainNameSales (Uniregistry market). Last up there’s Zently, another startup from California that is a rental space management solution provider that offers a mobile app to help property renters and owners live in harmony.

One thought on “60 newly funded startups and their domain names: Pugz.com, Indi.com, Zently.com

  1. I wonder if the Purple Squirrel is in the same business as the Drunk Elephant…

    Indi is a fantastic name. Nice flip by the person who bought it at SnapNames back in the days.
