SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- Continuing its efforts to help startups become more attractive to customers, users and investors, Principal of Tallwave Capital, Greg Lehmann, will join a panel of experienced speakers during the FundingPost Investor Roundtable Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014. The event will feature panelists from both local and out of state experts to advise attendees on what it really takes to secure funding for their startup and early stage companies.
"Entrepreneurs are given a lot of bad advice regarding what investors really look for," said Lehmann. "This panel will specifically provide attendees with tangible skills and strategies they can take into their next investor pitch. We've seen the good, the bad and the ugly and this event is the perfect opportunity to learn from others' mistakes and successes."

Free VC Mapping Tool
Lehmann's panel participation comes on the heels of the release of Tallwave's VC Mapping Tool of active early-stage venture capital investors in the U.S. The tool provides valuable information to anyone seeking to find the right investors for their company.
The map is broken down by location and primary investor type. "Entrepreneurs, especially in tier two cities like Phoenix, Portland and Dallas, need to be looking across the country and targeting 100 conversations, not five or ten," said Jerrod Bailey, partner and practice lead, Tallwave. "The most important thing is to find an investor that specifically fits your needs. They can be found in the most unlikely places and our VC Mapping Tool is the perfect place to start."
