Waldo Raises $15m in Funding – Upgrades to Waldo.com


Waldo is a startup that allows its users to “create reliable automated mobile tests with the world’s first no-code testing platform.” Earlier today, Waldo announced a $15 million round of funding on its company blog. The company was founded in 2018, and it has been using the Waldo.io domain name for its website. Here’s what the company shared today:

“Today, I am proud to announce that Waldo closed a $15M Series A round led by Joshua Zelman at Insight Partners with the participation of Matrix Partners and First Round Capital. Also joining us in this round Nicolas Dessaigne (Founder of Algolia), Ben Porterfield (Co-founder of Looker), Tyler Gaffney (CEO of Zenhub) and Keenan Rice (GM at Firebolt).”

When I saw the Waldo brand name come across my news feed today, I remembered that Jamie Zoch had recently emailed me about the Waldo.com domain name. In mid January, he detected that Waldo.com was pending transfer, potentially indicating that the domain name was sold.

If you visit Waldo.com, you can see it is being used by the startup that just announced its fundraising round. In addition, the company now forwarding the previously used Waldo.io domain name to Waldo.com.

Waldo.com is now registered at Google’s registrar under Whois privacy. It had previously been registered to a company in Minnesota. I looked through my email history, and I do not see any brokerage listings for Waldo.com.

Waldo.com is a solid domain name, and it was a wise acquisition for Waldo.
