specialist, announced last week that it has landed four new accounts

New clients at NVC include Cenquest, which partners with universities to

provide graduate-level education online; Salu.net, which provides

Internet services for independent physicians; WebTrends, which provides

enterprise management and analysis for online businesses; and Network24,

a Bay Area-based Web broadcasting company.



All of the new clients are start-ups with no previous agency of record -

except for Network24, which used the Weber Group for just a few months

before hiring NVC.



NVC president Ray Berardinelli suggested that the firm’s growth evinces

the continuing health of the Pacific Northwest hi-tech economy.

According to a recent survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers, venture

capitalists invested more than dollars 80 million in Oregon-based

start-ups during the first half of 1999, up more than 135% from a year

ago.



Also, with Silicon Valley agencies thirsting for talent but too busy to

add to their client load, more CA-based companies are looking for PR

help outside the area.



To serve the new business, NVC recently added eight new employees,

including former Verifone PR manager Sheree Fitzpatrick.
