Angel Investing

You’re reading an excerpt of Angel Investing: Start to Finish, a book by Joe Wallin and Pete Baltaxe. It is the most comprehensive practical and legal guide available, written to help investors and entrepreneurs avoid making expensive mistakes. Purchase the book to support the authors and the ad-free Holloway reading experience. You get instant digital access, commentary and future updates, and a high-quality PDF download.

We had the feedback of a lot of our friends in writing this book. To give thanks to just some of who helped us, and not in order of importance: Thank you Mary Baker Anderson, Bryan Brewer, William (“Bill”) Carleton, Barnaby Dorfman, Jeff Greene, Mitchell Hymowitz, Mike Koss, Adam Lieb, Josh Maher, Brandon Nett, Dave Parker, Gary Ritner, Dan Rosen, and Nancy Thayer. If we have forgotten anyone, please forgive us.

Pete would also like to thank The Academy, and his lovely wife Carol and charming daughter Katelyn for putting up with his long hours of writing when he should have been mowing the lawn or waxing the skis or baking bread. And, of course, he would like to thank the book’s editor, Rachel, who made the whole process fun.

All errors are entirely ours.


Although this book contains a lot of legal information and is intended in part to be a guide to frequently encountered legal issues, it does not constitute legal advice, nor the establishment of an attorney–client relationship with any reader. Nor does this book constitute financial advice. You should always consult with your own legal and financial advisors before investing in a startup or early-stage company.
