213 Newly Funded Startups and their Domain Names Including Carmax.com, Klarna.com, and OneFootball.com

Another week, another $25.2 million dollar average funding deal size across 200+ companies. Most of them were .com related, with .IO, .AI, and .CO bringing up the rest of the TLDs worth mentioning.

Brandable Domain Name Sales Week 23 – 2021 (June 8th through June 14th)

I admit it, I’m a big fan of .org. A single one-word .org makes an amazing brand. I will die on that hill and take you all down with me.

187 Newly Funded Startups and their Domain Names Including PerchHQ.com, Anthropic.com, and Faculty.ai

Some thoughts: Anthropic (of or relating to humans) is an AI company that raised $124m. Kind of an obscure dictionary word, so I love it as a brand. HelloResolve.com just raised $60m, but they don’t have Resolve.com, which currently, er… resolves to a “coming soon” page for a physician job search. I have to imagine …
