The total funding raised by 77 startups this past week was $415,782,943. Devoted Health, with the category killer domain, Devoted.com, led the funding round by raising approximately $62 million in venture funding. The company is focussed on providing health care for seniors. Of the 77 startups on this week’s list, 49 of them chose to launch with a .com domain name, while 2 companies chose a .net domain name. 21 companies chose a ccTLD, and we have one .company, one .enterprises, one .games, and two .xyz domains.
Unlike the last few weeks, there were some very nice domain names this week. We’ve already highlighted Devoted Health, with the premium Devoted.com. The domain was first created in 1997, but it looks like it might have been mostly undeveloped until recently. The name works well for many companies in many niches, and it especially works well for a health care company in terms of communicating it’s mission. Honestly, I wouldn’t think twice about checking out the services offered by a healthcare company whose domain name is Devoted.com. Next, we’ll highlight Chatterbug.com. Chatterbug is a term for a ‘person who talks a lot’, and surely the brand works for this company as they seek to use adaptive courses to help folk develop better language skills. Finally, we have CardX, a company that allows businesses to accept credit card payments with no fee to the business. The domain name, CardX.com, sold for $20,000 on Sedo back in 2015.
