This fine and dandy when it comes to some product/service that runs online on a network and hardware already built and paid for by previous startups like Cisco/Intel etc. I don't think you can develop a new materials technologies or semiconductors or bio tech ventures with this model that you put forth. For those ventures still require a lot of heavy lifting and there are not many VC's of the ilk you mention like Y-combinator etc to fund such ideas/startups. The kind of startups you mention take advantage of lot of the heavy lifting already done to create this platform. I would like to see First Round Capital or USV or you invest in seed stage in Biotech startup or in a new energy technology venture. The stakes are much higher and it is not for faint hearted, maybe Governments are the best suited to these investments, cuz private enterprise is least risk averse.
