Brittany Genelin

Business and Financial Services Associate

Brittany brings extensive experience in retail, manufacturing, field sales, and acquisition strategy. Prior to joining Hyde Park Angels, Brittany held a management role on Best Buy’s Growth, Innovation, and Strategy Team focusing on corporate strategy and business development opportunities. Previously, she was a Consultant in Deloitte Consulting’s Strategy and Operations practice where she advised Fortune 100 companies on their merger and acquisition activity planning and execution.

At Best Buy, Brittany helped to pioneer the company’s engagement with startups. In this role, she enabled Best Buy to more easily and consistently assort hardware created by startup companies in the retail stores while also paving the way for the company to use startup partnerships to enhance core retail capabilities like product delivery and retail employee scheduling. This engagement with entrepreneurs is what drove Brittany toward early-stage investing and the desire to continue supporting entrepreneurship in the Midwest. Prior to this role, Brittany focused on top-line strategy for Best Buy’s Appliances and B2B businesses and formulated its approach to online content.

Brittany graduated with honors from the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management with a BS in Marketing. Currently, she is pursuing her MBA at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, concentrating in Entrepreneurship, Strategic Management, and Finance. Outside of early-stage investing, Brittany is passionate about early childhood education and veteran’s affairs.
