A whopping $577,293,300 in funding was raised by 55 new startup companies last week. More than 67% of these companies launched with a .com domain name followed by the ccTLDs with 14.5 percent. Cover, a technology company which offers a design optimization software for making custom-designed properties such as livable sheds is the only startup this week that chose a new domain extension: Cover.build
Some domain names that I like on this week’s list include those of Grammarly, a fantastic startup that offers an AI-powered browser extension to help people communicate more effectively. As a non-native English speaker, I use their Chrome plugin pretty much daily to help me catch typos and grammar mistakes. The company just raised a very large funding round and can be found at the matching Grammarly.com domain name. Another domain name I quite like is of UK-based healthcare startup Care Sourcer which provides is a web-based tool on the CareSourcer.com domain name which enables an individual and their family members (care seekers) to investigate and source care that meets their specific needs. Last up we have Califoria-based fintech startup Empower which aims to help millennials manage their finances through its mobiles app for iOS devices. The company uses the Empower.me domain name.
