Newly funded startups and their (domain) names – week 37 & 38.

I have been extremely busy lately with both work and travel so I had to skip my usual report on newly funded startups and their domain names last week. To make up for it and to make sure the results of my quarterly analysis on Most popular domain name extensions among startups will remain reliable I will bring you up to speed with a extensive list of 131 newly funded startup companies from both week 37 and 38.

A whopping 912+ million US dollar in funding was raised over the course of the last 14 days. Over 77% of these companies launched with a .com domain with the ccTLDs coming in second again. Bueno Foods is one brave startup from India that uses one of the new gTLDs with their food ordering platform being on the domain.  Surprisingly there are also two startups using a .mobi – the first ones we’ve seen on this list for a looong time.

Some name + domain name combos that I like on this list are from NY based, online grocery marketplace Mercato that uses the matching .com, plaintiff financing marketplace Mighty which uses the premium exact match and last but not least I like Save, a French smartphone repair service that uses the short and punchy domain

  1. HI Doron and thank you as always. I find the use of the .mobi very interesting actually. Wouldn’t it be something if that extension were to ever make a comeback.
