In the past, I’ve featured Paul Graham and Jason Calacanis on this blog. Two famous venture capitalists who recognize the part that domain names play in the success of a startup.

Jason has even acquired his fair share of top domain names. After selling 20.com a couple of years ago, Jason still owns and operates Inside.com – a popular curated newsletter service.

Today, I came across another venture capitalist who owns a couple of incredible domains – Leo Radvinsky.

This Chicago-based investor has a rich history with the Internet, reportedly making his fortune by building successful companies in the Internet advertising, web hosting, and software development fields.

Today, Leo Radvinsky owns and operates the Leo.com venture capital fund. The domain Leo.com looks to be a name that Radvinsky acquired in 2012 for a reported price of $120,000, after it was flipped twice.

According to this report, Leo.com was purchased by Andy Booth for $50,000 before reportedly flipping it to Robert Kalfayan, who subsequently sold the name for $120,000 to Leo Radvinsky.

More recently, Leo looks to have acquired LR.com after this valuable two-letter .COM name moved from a Chinese registrant to the US in August 2020. That domain forwards to LeoRadvinsky.com, so it’s highly likely that Leo purchased LR.com. Based on previous two-letter .COM sales, LR.com would be a six- or seven-figure acquisition.
