The domain name is such an important part of a company’s branding strategy. Many entrepreneurs choose company names based purely on the availability of the .com domain. Now, here is a chance to have probably the most sought after domain in our industry: Lend.com.
The owner of this domain name has contacted me asking if I know anyone interested in buying it. They are entertaining offers of $2 million or more. Clearly, this is not going to be appealing to many of the scrappy startups in our industry but as this industry goes more mainstream some deeper pockets are coming in. Maybe Goldman Sachs should buy it.
If you are interested all the information is at Lend.com.
