88 Newly Funded Startups and their Domain Names: RootCloud.com, FirstAgenda.com

This post covers new startups funded during Week 2 of 2018 (Jan 8th-14th).

Eighty eight (88) newly funded startups raised more than $647,041,138. The funding rounds was led by Blackfish, a Chinese  consumer finance platform, who raised $145M in Series A funding. Of the 88 startups, 62 of them chose to use a dot-com domain name; accounting for 70 % of companies on our list. Twenty two (22) startups chose to launch with a country code top level domain (ccTLD). And finally, we have one dot-net domain name; one dot-auto; one dot-investments; and one dot-ltd.

It was quite tough to find domain names to highlight. But, we’ll press on with RootCloud.com. Root Cloud is a Beijing-based cloud computing company, who may have only acquired the domain name two months ago. Although ‘root’ is not the first word one would think to combine with ‘cloud’, this domain works for the company as they seek to provide “tree root interconnection to empower industrial clouds.” Next up, we have FirstAgenda.com, belonging to a Danish-based company looking to end inefficient meetings by creating smarter meeting software. First Agenda definitely works well for a company providing meeting software as “first on the agenda” comes to mind immediately. Honestly, I’m not even sure that any software could end pointless meetings, but at least this company is trying to make the pointless meetings efficient.
