Tallwave Takes Startup Acceleration, Advice To Portland

Scottsdale, Arizona-based startup commercialization and startup advisory Tallwave, said Tuesday that it has opened up a new office in Portland. The expansion is the first for the company beyond Arizona. According to Tallwave, it is using the new office to tap into the growing startup and technology ecosystem in the region. The new office will be led by Sean McMahon. Tallwave launched in Phoenix in 2009. Tallwave says its services--unlike incubators or traditional accelerators--include rapid prototyping, user validation, sales systemization and branding.
