Venture in stealth mode, but deck stacked for new top level domain names.
eNom founder Paul Stahura, who sold his domain name registrar to Demand Media in 2006, has teamed up several other industry vets for a new venture reports GeekWire.
The stealth venture called Donuts Inc has raised $1 million according to SEC filings.
Former Network Solutions VP Jonathon Nevett is one of the company’s executives. Nevett has been an active consultant for new top level domain names, which makes me wonder if Donuts Inc will be applying for new top level domain names.
The deck is certainly stacked with the credentials for such a play. Other members of the executive team include Richard Tindal, whose bare-bones LinkedIn profile still lists him as SVP of registry at Demand Media and Daniel Schindler, former CEO of CentralNIC.
Directors include members of venture capital firms TL Ventures and Austin Ventures.
This will be an interesting one to watch.
