    Here is a list of some of the big Indian startup and their brand name:

    1) Flipkart.com - (e-commerce: Amazon India competitor) Recently acquired by Walmart at $20 billion valuation.

    2) Zomato.com - One of the biggest food review and delivery startup in India, expanding abroad.

    3) Swiggy.in/com - Swiggy is a food delivery startup. Started as Swiggy.in and later they acquired the .COM

    4) OlaCabs.com - Commonly known as Ola, it is a competitor to Uber with over $5B valuation

    5) OyoRooms.com - Hotel room aggregator with over $5 billion valuation. Commonly known as Oyo.

    6) Cure.Fit - Using a new gTLD, this one is definitely worth mentioning. They have Cult.Fit, Mind.Fit, Eat.Fit and Care.Fit. All are .fit extension and this business is going to do really well.

    Share the big startup names of your country so that we know what kind of brandables are startups and businesses looking at. Also, we may try to form an idea to distinguish good ones from better ones when we invest!

    Nice post .. VERY interesting to see some brandable two word domains in there. Although I'm guessing OlaCabs is more apps focused, but OyoRooms at $5B and FlipKart being a two word misspell that grew to $20B is really great to see.

    I'd think that these types of domains represent majority of domains held by the majority of domainers. In fact .. Zomato is likely the only one I even would have bid on in an expired auction as the vast majority of domains in my portfolio are significantly stronger than OyoRooms (and I'm guessing that's the case for most of us)! lol

    (I'm assuming the valuations are in $USD)

    IMO cure.fit is a misfit. if they were using a ngtld they could have gotten a better name. Cure is more for disease and sickness.

    Certainly reassuring, and inspiring as well. It would be great to see some statistics on the domains sold on BB etc, to see how many are developed after purchase, and to what extent.

    keep it coming guys.. People may use some of those to create their own brandables!!

    Or we may have a better perspective as to what Entrepreneurs are using in UK, Germany, Silicon Valley and so on...

    I am from India, so I can share things at my end. About Indian Startups..

    There's GoJek in Indonesia that I know of.
