82 Newly Funded Startups and their Domain Names: EMQ.com, ScaleFast.com, OutboundWorks.com

Happy New Year! I didn’t post for the past two weeks as I went on vacation. The new year met my family and I on the sandy beaches of Aruba. We loved it! It’s a lovely place to visit. But, for this reason, this post will cover new startups funded during Week 51 of 2017 (December 18th – 24th).

More than 82 startups raised a sum greater than $551,659,726 in funding. The funding rounds was led by Niido, who raised $200M in venture funding. Niido by Airbnb is a brand of residential complexes that will be built as a result of a collaboration between Airbnb and a Florida-based development group. Of the 82 startups on today’s list, 54 of them chose to launch with a dot-com domain name, accounting for about 66%. Twenty (20) startups chose a ccTLd, while we have 1 dot-net, and 1 dot-org domain. As for new gTLDs, we have one domain each of the following: .bio, .care, .exchange, .marketing, .pro, and .solutions.

First up, we’ll highlight the 20-year old domain, EMQ.com. Wholesale, LLL.com domain names sell in the low to mid 5 figures; while retail they can go from mid 5 to low 6 figures. Although there is no recorded information about EMQ.com in Namebio.com, I won’t be surprised if the price paid for the domain fell somewhere in these ranges. EMQ is an app to make sending money internationally easier. Next up, we have ScaleFast.com. This verb-adjective combination makes a decent brandable. ScaleFast provides ecommerce solutions that allow businesses to grow globally. Finally, we have OutboundWorks.com, a domain that was first registered in 2017. Simply put, OutboundWorks provides outbound solutions for sales teams.
