2015 in Review: Our Top 3 Entrepreneurial Resource Series

We launched the official Hyde Park Angels blog in late January with one central goal — to demystify the early-stage investment process for entrepreneurs so they could successfully navigate the process and build their companies. Since then, we’ve broken down difficult concepts like term sheets, option pools, and venture debt and provided insights into how angels make investments and the dos and don’ts of pitching. Of all of our series, we’ve hand-selected our top 3 most used and recommended. Take a look.
