9 Angel Investing Resources – Courtesy of Boulder Startup Week

Over the past two days, I’ve had the privilege to speak at two Boulder Startup Week events with an all-star lineup of startup community thought leaders: Brad Bernthal, Seth Levine, Claudia Batten, Todd Vernon, Morris Wheeler, Ari Newman, Sue Heilbronner and Robert Fenwick-Smith. You can read a recap of our first BSW event here and below is a list of the resources this lineup recommended for angel investors and entrepreneurs raising angel capital. We thought it might be helpful to pass along. Enjoy!
