What Our Readers Have To Say

I find the Seraf materials, including blog posts, training materials and e-books, to be incredibly valuable. They are not only quick and enjoyable reads, but they also effortlessly distill decades of invaluable practitioner experience into tangible frameworks, guide posts and lessons learned. Thank you!

The team at Seraf does such a great job of distilling decades of hard-won learnings about early stage investing into digestible bites for both investors and founders alike. This one is a very quick checklist of important things to consider when evaluating any investment. Founders, take note of how smart investors are sizing up every opportunity. Thank you Christopher Mirabile and Hambleton Lord and the rest of the Seraf team for selflessly sharing so many life lessons.

Having just finished all four books in a row I believe they are the most robust repository of angel wisdom........and yet also the easiest to digest.
