Data company that uses a new TLD gets more funding.Slowly but surely, businesses that use new top level domain names are becoming more common.
Austin, Texas-based Data.world has snagged $19 million in funding, bringing its total capital raised to $32.7 million.
The company bills itself as a “social network for data people.” It was founded by Brett Hurt, who previously founded Bazaarvoice.
DataWorld.com is an existing business that provides SAP consulting and integration services. I can imagine that the owner of DataWorld.com gets a number of inquiries meant for Data.world.
.World is one of Donuts’ top level domains.
