101 newly funded startups and their domain names: Parrot.com, Brave.com, StatUp.com

Boom! Over 387 million dollars in venture funding was raised last week. It is the largest list so far this year with 101 newly funded companies. More than 80% of them chose to launch their business with a .Com name with the ccTLDs a distant second with 12% and .Co coming in third with about 5% of the pie. There often are questions or comments about the list, especially when a more established company shows up on the list so I thought it would be good to explain again that this list consists of all companies that raised their first round of outside capital (Angel, Seed, Venture or a Series A round). It happens from time to time that a business that has been in existence for many years raises a first round of venture funding which automatically puts them on this list.  Once a company has been listed it won’t be included again, even when they go on to raise a second, third or fourth round of funding.

Some great name + domain name combos on this list include US based Parrot which develops wireless devices for mobile phones and uses the matching Parrot.com domain name, stealth mode tech startup Brave Software that focused on building a safer and faster internet over at Brave.com and I also love StatUP, a startups that helps athletes improve using evaluation tests. They acquired the matching .com earlier this year for just $2,999 at BuyDomains. A great example that you can find a solid .com brand for under $5k as a startup.

One thought on “101 newly funded startups and their domain names: Parrot.com, Brave.com, StatUp.com

  1. Hello Doron,

    Stampery. owns stampery.com for a while, and they got $600K as funding from Draper Associates with Boost VC.
    It’s another PROOF.com competing service… this is why I am aware.

    PS: Reminder, will be great you put in bold those that already have their brandname.com
