Why ParkingCrew Parent Team Internet, EMail.biz's Anshul Goyal, Fred Mercaldo & Elliot Silver Have Reason to Celebrate + Plans for Domainers Meetup in Seattle

You may have heard the sound of corks popping in domain/internet circles over the past few days. Several well-known faces in our industry had good reason to celebrate

For starters Team Internet AG, the parent company of ParkingCrew.com (who was profiled in our February 2013 Newsletter), scored a huge honor when Deloitte released the names of the companies included on their prestigious  2013 Technology Fast 50 list for Germany. 

Team Internet not only made the list - they were #1 on it, giving them the title of  Fastest Growing Technology Company ("Rising Star") in Germany! Congratulations to CEO Nico Zeifang, COO Stefan Wiegard, CTO Mario Witte and the entire team on this big win.

Shortly before Team Internet was celebrating in Germany, Indian entrepreneur Anshul Goyal was doing the same in New Delhi after his company, EMail.biz (a service we profiled when it launched late last year), won the 2013 ABP Brand Excellence Award in the IT Portal Category. ABP is a prominent Indian news organization whose Brand Excellence Awards "give recognition to those brands and marketers who have achieved extraordinary success from innovative and effective marketing practices."

In covering the event The Telegraph wrote, "the award was given in recognition of the pioneering work of Email.biz for their conceptualization and successful execution of their email service which has garnered a record number of registered users, 1,48,718, in a short span of time. The who's who of the Indian IT industry were present at this event hosted by World Brand Congress, in partnership with CMO Asia and CMO Council USA."

Elsewhere, Fred Mercaldo of CitiesPlanet.com is celebrating his company's acquisition of developed website Burbank.com from Elliot Silver of Silver Internet Ventures, LLC (Elliot is also the author of the DomainInvesting.com blog). 

The price was not disclosed but Mercaldo said, “This six figure purchase will be the first of a series of upcoming announcements in the fourth quarter, as many other large deals are in the works. Our partnership with Tallwave is thriving, and we anticipate launching a completely new software platform for all of our City.com brands by year's end.”

One other note today, DomainSherpa.com Founder Michael Cyger asked us to let you know that he is organizing an informal Meetup for domain investors in the Seattle area that will be held one evening in early 2014.

Cyger noted, "Seattle is bustling with activity and it's time we organized a get together to help people meet. Based in Seattle, in addition to domain name investors and entrepreneurs, are companies including Marchex, Donuts, NameJet, DomainTools, GoDaddy, Enom and many others."

At this point Michael is just asking people interested in attending to sign up for his meetup newsletter at DNSeattle.com so he can get a count, then pick a location and finalize a date.
