Hi, this is Neil Thanedar!
Thanks for subscribing to my newsletter, Utopic News!
Welcome to the 186 new subscribers who joined since I posted We Need a Middle Class for Startups.
My latest post, Y Combinator for Mittelstands, is summarized below.
I want to create the Y Combinator for Mittelstands:
Idea: Raise two funds to help founders launch and scale middle class startups:
  1. Accelerator: Invest the first $100K+ to help new pre-Mittelstands launch and grow.
  2. Ventures: Invest $1M+ to help pre-Mittelstands go from $1M to $10M+ revenue.
Thesis: It’s possible to get VC-style 10x+ returns with a much lower risk profile.
  • Opportunity: Help founders keep control of their Mittelstands for longer.
  • Strategy: Be the first (and often only) investor in pre-Mittelstand businesses.

Mittelstands can solve The World’s Biggest Problems.
Mittelstands are great for founders, investors, employees, and the economy.
  • The higher likelihood of successful exits better aligns incentives between Mittelstand founders and investors.
  • The lower failure rate of these businesses provide stability for employees and the economy.

  2. Exploring ways to fund more pre-Mittelstand businesses with my Y Combinator for Mittelstands.
