Austin, Texas (PRWEB) July 2, 2008
CameronWeeks Public Relations, the only PR firm to offer 100 percent senior-level representation for complex technologies and industries, today announced that the Trans Pecos/El Paso Regional Center of Innovation and Commercialization (TPEP RCIC) has selected the firm as its public relations agency of record. CameronWeeks will launch TPEP RCIC as the organization focused on building and supporting entrepreneurial relationships on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border while fostering economic development in the El Paso region.
Based in El Paso, Texas, TPEP RCIC has been tasked by agencies such as the Texas Emerging Technologies Fund (ETF) and Camino Real Angels to provide due diligence prior to funding by the ETF and private capital sources. After initial funding is obtained, TPEP RCIC continues to monitor the business and financial strengths of funded companies and to assist them in raising additional capital. TPEP RCIC's team of specialists boasts backgrounds in engineering, intellectual property law, alternative energy, start-ups and incubators, finance and economic development. Utilizing this unique blend of specialized skills in evaluating entrepreneurs reduces risk to fledgling business by preparing them before approaching venture capitalists and funding entities, and also reduces risk to investors by presenting highly qualified, researched and thoroughly evaluated candidates.
"The TransPecos/El Paso region is fast becoming a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity," states Ebetuel Pallares, Executive Director, Trans Pecos/El Paso Regional Center of Innovation and Commercialization. "The TPEP RCIC is the 'go-to' organization to help bridge the gaps that inhibit entrepreneurial growth in the region, and we cannot think of a better agency than CameronWeeks to help us get the word out to entrepreneurs and potential investors alike."
"TPEP RCIC's audience is comprised of such a diverse mix of entrepreneurs, engineers, universities and incubators that engage in tech transfer, larger corporate entities in both the United States and Mexico, as well as venture capitalists, angels and other private funding entities," said Patti D. Hill, CEO, CameronWeeks Public Relations. "We are working with TPEP RCIC to demonstrate their skills and services to those in the commercial, financial and entrepreneurial sectors with an interest in taking advantage of the technological and industrial resources offered by the burgeoning technopolis in the El Paso region."
CameronWeeks PR Strategist Cindy Tincher leads the TPEP RCIC account.
