Newly funded startups and their (domain) names – week 7.

Lots of funding activity this week with a mammoth number of 58 newly funded startups raising a combined 62+ million dollars in seed and angel funding. Almost 80% of companies this week launched their sites on a .com domain with .co being a very distant runner up with 4 startups opting for the extension. New gTLD .guru makes its debut to this report with two startups choosing the one year old TLD for their venture.

With $4,000,000 in funding each, leading this weeks chart are software quality assurance startup Rainforest and Seaters, a company that aims to fill the empty seats on sport and music events. Both use a .com domain but only Seaters has their matching .com.  The domain name is in use by a fashion brand that goes by the same name.

  1. Very interesting domain list. There are a few that I would not think twice to acquire. But these days, it is about the idea behind the domain that makes the money.
