Newly funded startups and their (domain) names – week 31.

Last week we saw 66 new startup companies raise a combined $424,660,100 in capital. More than 80% of them is launching with a .com web address while the ccTLDs take a distant second place. Fund raising champion with a solid first funding round of 119 million dollars is UK based Mereo BioPharma Group. The company uses as their url while is currently parked and offered for sale through the DomainNameSales platform.

I received a few messages after Sunday’s Sales and Acquisition post about the beta signup form for Efty showing a blank page. This has been fixed.

  1. I don’t even see one new G in the list. I think that the new Gs forgot they had to make a sound as cool as “c-om”. There are a few ok sounds in them – but they are lost in the bunch.
