91 newly funded startups and their domain names: Ve.com, Kudos.com, Kolos.com

BOOM! $1,019,118,360 in fresh capital was raised by 91 start-up companies in the last week. This record-breaking number is mainly caused by a $500 million series A round in Shanghai-based United Imaging Healthcare, a medical imaging equipment developer. The round values United Imaging at RMB33 billion (US$5 billion) post-money, allowing the firm to join the ever-growing list of Chinese unicorns. The company uses the hyphenated United-Imaging.com domain name since the direct match .com is developed by a US-based company selling office supplies.

More than 72% of the startups on this list launched with a .com domain name followed by the ccTLDs who claim 14% of the pie this week.

Some domain names I like on this list include those of Adtech company Ve Global which operates from the swanky 2-letter Ve.com domain name. The domain name was previously owned by domain name investor Aron Meystedt as reported by Elliot Silver here but is not clear if he sold the domain name to the London-based startup.  Another killer domain is Kudos.com, which is in use by California-based Kudos&Co which describes itself as an entertainment company that offers a safer social sharing experience for kids. Last up there’s Kolos, a yet-to-be-built data center in Norway which will be the largest green data center in the world with 100% of its energy powered by hydropower. They managed to acquire the matching Kolos.com domain name which was first registered in 1998 and in use by some Ukrainian webshop for many years.
