We don’t like to toot our own horn too much. The variance in angel investing is so large, it’s sometimes pretty difficult to know if you have been successful or not!
Recently, Entrepreneur Magazine named its Top Ten Angel Groups in the US. Hyde Park Angels was fortunate to be among them. The article incorrectly counts 133 angels. We have 90, but we do have a continuous cadre of Booth MBA students that work for us and we get plenty of support from Tom Ancona of the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
HPA has also had a lot of support from members of the Midwest entrepreneurial community. Even Mayor Daley’s office met with us back in August of 2007! There are far too many to mention, but we really appreciate all you have done for us and hope that we are returning the favor.
If you are an entrepreneur that has had a successful exit, and wants to join an angel group to keep yourself involved, we might be the right fit for you.
