Did A Internet Company Without A Domain Name Just Raise $3.5 Million?
This week, AwesomenessTV, a media company that operates a YouTube channel with programming closed a $3.5 million Series A investment round led by MK Capital. Greycroft Ventures Partners, New World Ventures, Machinima CEO Allen DeBevoise, UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer and MediaLink CEO Michael Kassan are among the other investors.
The company’s YouTube channel, which launched in June, boasts more than 75,000 subscribers.
“It’s been a great five weeks. We went from 0 views to 12 million in 5 weeks and from no subscribers to closing in on 100,000 in five weeks,” founder Brian Robbins, a veteran Hollywood producer and director, told TheWrap.
The official site of the company is YouTube.com/user/AwesomenessTV
AWESOMENESS.TV was registered in April 2012 under privacy at Godaddy.com
AWESOMENESSTV.COM was registered in 2010 also under privacy.
Both domain names are going to a Godaddy Placeholder
The .com since April has been getting traffic and it looks like traffic to the .com is on the move up.
I reached out to the company this week to see if they owned the domain names but didn’t get a response.
So the company either just raised $3.5 Million without their own domain name or they aren’t using them.
