According to the Term Sheet, CommonBond, a New York-based student lending platform, has raised over $100 million in new equity and debt financing.
Tribeca Venture Partners and The Social + Capital Partnership led the equity tranche, and were joined by Vikram Pandit (ex-Citi CEO), Tom Glocer (ex-Thomson Reuters CEO) and Tom Kalaris (ex-Barclays exec).
The company’s website is commonbond.co
CommonBond.com appears to be owned by a different company, CommonBond Communications.
I know there are a bunch of domainers that will tell this company they made a huge mistake by building their business out on a .co rather than a .com but not many of those domainers have over $100 million in the bank.
It would appear there is a good amount of traffic leakage to the .com.
CommonBond.com has an Alexa rank of 4.6 million and a Compete rank of 1.5 Million.
CommonBond.co has an Alexa rank of 900K and no Compete rank.
