A great name could land you big bucks! A venture capital firm spinning out of Atlas Ventures has launched a crowdsourcing campaign to help it attain the perfect name. The "winner" earns a $50,000 investment in a new $200 million fund that the firm just closed. Half of the this reward would go into your bank account, and the other half would go toward a TUGG nonprofit of your choice. (TUGG is a Boston-area philanthropy network founded by one of the firm's partners.)
The firm isn't giving many clues about what they're seeking in a name, but according to the website set up for this crowdsourcing competition: "Most venture capital names are awful. Why? Because they come from a handful of blue blazers in a boardroom. You can do better."
So ... can you do better?
Name.Kitchen editors put their heads together to offer up these recommendations, based on some of the newest domain extensions available. After all, this firm will need a new URL, right?
