Last week, there was an increase from the previous week in both the number of new startups launched, and in the corresponding funding raised. In fact, 85 startups raised a total of $536,732,751 USD. The funding round was led by Neurimmune Holding, a Swiss biotech company who uses antibody remedies to cure diseases. 61 of the 85 startups (72%) chose to launch with a .com domain name, while 23 of them (27%) chose a ccTLD, and one organization chose its corresponding .org domain.
This week, the better domains were of the brandable variety. Though BigLabs.com is somewhat generic, it is also brandable. Big Labs is focussed on launching big ideas into successful companies. Our second company, Counting Up, provides banking, accounting and general financial solutions for new startups and sole traders. Since “counting up” is actual mathematical terminology, I think the domain works decently for this company. And kudos to them for seemingly upgrading from CountingUpHQ.com to CountingUp.com. A domain that exactly matches the company’s name is always a plus. Finally, we have CashFree, a company that provides Indian businesses with payment solutions.
Here’s this weeks list:
