87 newly funded startups and their domain names: Zylo.com, Returnly.com, LeadCrunch.com

If you’re interested in startups, Silicon Valley and like a good laugh, I can highly recommend Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Start-Up Bubble by Dan Lyons which I downloaded earlier this week. It’s an incredibly fun and easy to read book which just shows how ridiculous, wasteful, and infantile heavily venture-funded tech start-ups can sometimes be. We have a list of 87 startup companies that raised a combined $549,989,030 in funding last week. More than 83% of these startups went with a .com domain name with the ccTLD claiming the usual 2nd place with just under 12%. There’s one startup that went with a new gTLD.

Some name + domains I like on this list are from US-based Zylo, a  SaaS optimization platform that helps companies manage and optimize their use of other SaaS subscriptions. The Zylo.com domain name was purchased for $10,000 at SnapNames back in April last year according to NameBio. Next, we have Returnly, a California-based Fintech platform that turns product returns into repurchases for online retailers and marketplaces. I can;t find any public sales record on the Returnly.com domain name but Whois records show the domain was registered two years before the company was founded. Last up we have LeadCrunch, which describes itself as a B2B customer discovery platform to accelerate sales and marketing. Looking at historical screenshots, the LeadCrunch.com domain name was previously in use as an affiliate network and more recently as a blog before it found it’s new home.
