Google Funding: Google Should Buy Funding.com
The Wall Street Journal reported that Google will be adding a technology venture capital division to its continuously diversifying portfolio of businesses. In the past, Google has been known to buy rapidly growing companies whose products would fit in well with the Google ecosystem. Now it seems that Google is poised to offer seed funding to tech companies with great promise. Personally, I think this is a great move. Not only will they be able to capitalize on companies at the beginning, but in addition to funding, they can also provide invaluable advice and support, as they were once a new company with a great base idea.
What better way to do this than to buy Funding.com, which happens to be owned by a good friend of mine. Since Google is likely to direct traffic to funding.google.com, they might as well try to buy Funding.com before their launch. This domain name will become a necessary asset to their company, and once the currently incubating Funding.com company is launched, the name will be untouchable
