2017 is going to be a lot busier for me than this year has been and I most likely won’t be able to continue publishing this series unless I find somebody to help me with compiling all newly funded startup data and putting the list together once a week. I can try to find someone from Fiverr or Freelancer.com but I prefer to work with someone who understands domains and ideally is passionate about startups too. If that person sounds like you and you can commit ~3 hours/week please contact me. Obviously, this is a paid gig.
Okay, let’s get on with the list: a whopping $429,608,410 in funding was raised by 70 startup companies last week. More than 67% of them launched with a .com domain name followed by the ccTLDs who claimed 14% of the list this week. Last week we had five but this week there’s not a single company that uses one of the many new domain extension.
Some domains I like this week are those of Singapore-based e-ticketing platform GlobalTix which uses the matching GlobalTix.com domain name, London-based E-commerce startup Artfinder which is an online marketplace at Artfinder.com for people to discover and buy paintings from international artists and galleries and last but certainly not least there’s Tiz, a startup from Chicago that makes it easier for restaurants and bars to order alcohol and operates from the 3-letter .com Tiz.com domain name.
