Wall Street Journal names new TLD company Donuts to Top 50 Startups
Thursday, September 27th, 2012
WSJ ranks Donuts #14 on list of top startups.
The Wall Street Journal just released its rankings of the top 50 venture-capital-backed companies, and new top level domain name company Donuts made the cut.
It actually did better than just make the cut, landing at #14 on the list. It’s also the youngest company on the list.
The company has just eight employees but has raised $100 million. It’s the biggest top level domain applicant by far, throwing its hat (and money) in the ring for 307 top level domain names.
The rankings are based on a number of factors, including previous success of the founders and investors on the board, capital raised, and growth in value.
