Hi, this is Neil!
Thanks for subscribing to my newsletter, Utopic News!
Here’s what’s new with me:
  • My latest post We Need A Middle Class For Startups was voted #1 on Hacker News this Tuesday! 25,000+ people have already read it, by far my best-performing post ever.
  • Labdoor is going to be featured on Stonks’ “Best of Community Rounds” Show on May 26th! Tune in at 1PM ET to see my ten-minute segment.
It’s Labdoor’s 10th Birthday Today!
This milestone reminded me one of my favorite blog posts ever, Sam Altman’s The days are long but the decades are short.

But our story is just getting started. The average age of the top 10 companies in our industry is 117 years old. The youngest company on that list is 26 years old. We’re still the new kid on the block; we’ve grown up, but we still have our whole life in front of us.
Here’s my advice to anyone struggling through the first decade or two (TL;DR: Keep going!):

  2. Raising a community round to expand my startup Labdoor.
