Newly funded startups and their (domain) names – week 40

78 new companies grabbed $411,381,060 dollars in funding last week.  Almost 80% of the companies on this list launched with a .com domain with the ccTLDs coming in second once again with 9%. The new gTLDs have really disappointed so far this year with an adoption rate of less than 1% among funded startups but we do have another brave company on this week’s list with digital payment company Safe Cash which uses the Safe.cash domain name.

Unfortunately there isn’t a single name + domain name combo on this list that I really like.

Here’s this weeks list:

Funding data is based on online reporting and DNgeek can not guarantee 100% accuracy. To compile this list we only include companies that raised a first round round of angel, seed, grant, Series A or Venture funding and exclude companies that raised private equity or series B and beyond funding rounds. 

If you’re a company looking for naming or domaining advice, drop me a note as i’m always happy to help.

  1. Thank you for the great job Doron. At least this time the new Gtld used is not really bad : Safe.Cash, better than Gtlds used in the lists before..
