Radix, the portfolio registry behind several leading new extensions including .tech, .store, .online, and .space, announced the launch of the Startup League initiative.

The Startup League (www.startupleague.online) is a unique startup-support program designed to aid early stage startups that use any of Radix's TLDs to launch their idea or company. This initiative will support startups across several key areas like marketing, event sponsorships, and PR.

The key benefits of the program include:

  • Cash Sponsorship for startups attending leading tech events like Disrupt, Web Summit, Collision, RISE, SLUSH etc. Radix will pick-up 25% of every start-up's participation cost
  • Media mentions on leading tech startup portals such as Alley Watch, Tech.eu
  • Start-up branded t-shirts and schwag
  • Special discounts and payment plans on Radix premium domain inventory

During the first week of the program, Radix incubated 15 startups including Emoji Keyboard developer Kika.tech, AI powered outsourced software development firm, Devteam.space and Wearable device for the visually impaired, Horus.tech.

The Startup League has also partnered with renowned startup enablers like Founders Space, Whub, Founders Institute to support the program and onboard their startups to the Startup League.

"We believe that our growth and success is linked closely to the number of high-visibility websites using our TLDs,' says Sandeep Ramchandani, VP & Business Head of Radix. "Through the start-up league we will provide financial and marketing assistance to our start-ups customers, with the goal of seeing some of them grow to become very popular brands."

Radix has also been an active participant of several start up focused events like RISE, Web Summit, SXSW and Techcrunch Disrupt event that is taking place in San Francisco right now.

Radix was also a sponsor of the TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon, and awarded a $5,000 price to the most innovative project on a Radix domain — racoon.tech. The hackathon that took place over the weekend saw 40+ projects choose Radix's new TLDs, including the Hackathon winner pointshop.space and the Verizon prize winner auto-trash.tech. Radix and StartUp League are also exhibiting through the conference to engage with more startups and make Radix domains their default choice.

Radix plans to ramp-up its focus on end-consumer events, both as a way of supporting it start-up customers exhibiting there, and as a way to recruit new start-ups into the program.
