62 Newly Funded Startups and their Domain Names: BlueWorkforce.com, SuperMetrics.com, CircleLoop.com

Last week, 62 startups raised a sum of $197,176,137. The funding round was led by Cambridge-based biotechnology company Base4, who raised a huge £21,300,000 ($28,698,555 USD) in venture funding. Among other R&D work, the company is working to develop new DNA sequencing methods. Of the startups on this list, 68% chose to launch with a .com domain name, while 27% of them launched using a ccTLD. Representing the new gTLDs, we have a .network, a .health and a .money.

Honestly, I didn’t love any of the domains on this week’s list. Nevertheless, first up, we have BlueWorkforce.com, belonging to a Danish company that makes industrial robots. It seems that the domain name was hand-registered by the founder of the company in 2012, and it actually works decently for them. Next up, we have SuperMetrics.com, belonging to a Finish company that provides tools for monitoring web analytics etc. Clearly, the domain works well for this company in terms of communicating its mission. However, from a domainer standpoint, although ‘metric’ and ‘metrics’ domains remain popular among the brandable domain crowd, the past data shows that there aren’t many high profile sales in these categories. Finally, we have CircleLoop.com, a British company offering cloud-based phone software, as an alternative to the likes of Vonage and Voipfone. Personally, the combination of ‘circle’ and ‘loop’ gives the idea of connectedness, even as ‘loop’ in telephony is the physical connection circuit between a customer’s premises and the network provider. Quite technical, I know.
