Melissa Shapiro NightingaleSlightly biased but Wattpad PR team is kicking butt. Lots of coverage out of the US, especially in entertainment, consumer, and ad pubs, and regular love from the Canadian outlets too.

Mark EvansI think the better question is what startups are generating the most traction and growth. PR and media attention is wonderful but it's the cherry on top of the sundae. Most startups enjoy their time in the spotlight but it's fleeting. As well, media coverage is a crapshoot. It's impossible to know when or if it will happen. It's why I think growing the business and driving awareness in different ways is a more pragmatic approach.

Robert LendvaiMark is right. PR that doesn't drive traction and growth is pretty much a masturbatory practice.
