Reset is the process of claiming Angel Investors in AdVenture Capitalist. Each reset wipes out almost all of the progress - money, businesses, upgrades, and unlocks (starts with the first business). However, any Angel Investors earned in the last session activate, and any previously Angel Investors are still retained; they're the one resource that persists and accumulates across resets.
Reset when you hit some significant number of new Angel Investors. The next session will be that much faster, due to the new Angels, and let you get further before things slow down too much.
A good target for the first reset is between 50 and 150 Angel Investors, which can be achieved in a day or two with reasonably efficient play. That'll speed up the next session with an automatic ✕ 2-4 multiplier. Future resets should probably occur after you've at least doubled the Angel Investor total, so that it has a noticeable effect (for the first few resets, it is easy to get 10 times the total). By your second or third reset, building up all your initial infrastructure should take only a short period of time - you'll know you're doing well if you can get your Oil Company to 25 or 50 before it finishes its first profit cycle.
Keep in mind that when you reset, you do not need to unlock the Moon or Mars again. When you reset on Earth you do not reset on the Moon or Mars. Angel Investors do not carry across to other planets, and every planet has a separate number of angels.
- Resetting cannot be done if the claiming of Angel Investors is zero.
