Transactions Marketing, Inc., a Greenwich CT based strategic development and venture
management firm, has been tapped by Penton

seminar at its Wireless Developer Conference entitled "Show Me the Money". The
seminar will focus on business planning and valuation tools, which young entrepreneurs
must master, to obtain first round institutional funding. Brenda Lewis, Principal of
Transactions Marketing, Inc. will team with Glenn Mersereau, Vice President of
Decisionpoint International LLC, a leading high tech M&A firm, to present the all day
seminar at the Westin Hotel in Santa Clara, CA on August 20.
Ms. Lewis will also reprise her successful VC panel at the conference, appearing August 23 on "The Konny Zsigo TV Show." Konstantin "Konny" Zsigo is the founder of the Wireless Developer Conference, which he sold in June to Penton Media, and serves as host of the TV show. The panel consists of an hour of no holds barred commentary on the state of venture capital and the wireless business, and reunites Ms. Lewis with the legendary Dixon Doll, Founder and Managing Partner of Doll Capital Management, and Steve Foster, General Partner of TPG Ventures. Last year the panel attracted a standing room only audience. For more information see Wireless Developer Conference.
