Newly funded startups and their (domain) names – week 6.

This week we saw 46 new startups raise 47+ million dollars in combined seed and angel funding. More than 78% of startups launched on a .com domain name while London based restaurant booking iOS app Uncover is the very first newly funded startup this year to use a new gTLD by launching their website on a .London domain.

Both companies that top this weeks list in term of money raised own their matching .com domain names: San Fransisco WiFi disrupter Eero with a whopping $5,000,000 in seed funding and wearable healthcare company Monica Healthcare with a nice $3,000,000 in funding raised.

Domain hacks seem to be a thing of the past these days and so are .net domains.

  1. This was a very helpful article, One of the names we own is WIZ.mobi and were looking to lease it. We just sent startup Wizpra an email. Thank you for posting this.
