I am a massive fan of Crunchbase.com & TechCrunch.com and while looking for new ideas to write about domain names I thought why not review the domain names these companies own and what extension that these companies are using, Some of these companies being funded might be using a TLD, CCTLD or GTLD.
I am going to run a daily report on the companies that have been funded and what they are using Right Of The Dot, I shall also cover the funds they raised and a little about each company, on average there will 10 companies and domains per day sometimes more sometimes less.
I might change this to be a weekly feature if you guys get board of it but otherwise I shall try to make it a daily feature – As domain investors we all love reading about what is the next big thing and normally have they used a DOT COM or a CCTLD or GTLD for their company name is a Generic name, Exact Match or a Domain Hack as their company name.
I appreciate all comments and feedback so please feel free to comment below and let me know if you like this Daily Funding Rounds Domain Name Check, I am planing to write daily on RobbiesBlog.com and some articles will feature domains and others won’t, I have updated my RSS Feeds and made everyone aware so don’t be put off if you see some posts that are non domain related.
