Various domain blogs have reported Rick Schwartz’s sale of Teem.com to cloud-based software and analytics platform Eventboard.IO in a cash + equity deal. Eventboard.IO is now redirecting to TEEM.com
A letter from the CEO says: “I’m proud to say that we’ve now provided a solution to over 2,000 companies worldwide and we’re adding close to 100 customers each month. We are very privileged to count many of the most progressive companies in the world as happy customers. Among these are companies that have raised billions of dollars in venture capital, are among the Fortune 100 best companies to work for, and even the Fortune 100 largest companies in the world, plus some of the top universities in the world.”
So, the question for us, domainers, here is that does this set a trend? Do highly successful startups have to eventually rebrand to COM?
I am a fan of tech .IO names though I don’t own any. A quick Google search shows some of these tech oriented .IO companies in the first page:
When these companies grow really big, would they have to change to COM? What do you think?
