75 newly funded startups and their domain names: Jisto.com, VerifyMe.com, RecordBird.com

Despite the fact that in the past quarter the value of some very high profile companies such as LinkedIn and Twitter have fallen substantially it was yet another solid week for newly formed companies on the hunt for venture capital. $415,084,680 was raised among 75 startups. With over 81% the fast majority of these businesses launched with a .Com address with the ccTLDs being a distant second with around 9% of this weeks pie. The new gTLDs have two reps this week: one .guru and a company that chose a .tech domain ending.

Some name + domain name combos I like on this weeks list include Boston based cloud computing startup Jisto. It’s the perfect example of a invented brand name that is easy to remember, say and spell and just sounds great. A more descriptive name I like is from NYC based startup VerifyMe, a company that offers security solutions to  protect industries, governments, and individuals from  fraud, identity theft and counterfeit products. I also like Record Bird, an Austrian service that  notifies music lovers about new and upcoming records by their favourite bands and musicians.

On a side note: Elliot Silver who writes DomainInvesting.com is riding in the 2016 Pan-Mass Challenge to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Cancer research is a cause I care deeply about so please consider making a donation and help Elliot reach his funding goal. Even a few bucks will make a difference!
