What would cause a company to transform from an Antiques Roadshow online into one of Nevada's most prominent website development and eBusiness providers? For Mark Cenicola and Jeff Helvin, it was a combination of legal red tape and a dot-com depression that forced a 180 onto the two budding entrepreneurs.
Initially conceived in 1999, the idea was to offer a fixed cost alternative to eBay, where they'd purchase items from yard sales and sell it for a profit online under the name, YardSaleNet.net. They'd even gone so far as to empty out a room in the Helvin household to stock their newly purchased inventory. Unfortunately, the laws requiring extensive background checks and copies of the previous owner's drivers license made purchasing the items difficult, forcing them to revise the project into something similar to Craigslist. With the height of the dot-com bust looming and funds running low, it would seem that the business was marked for failure. Luckily, the catalyst for the birth of BannerView.com was just around the corner, and from an unlikely source.
People familiar with the industry know that this happens all too often; your website designer goes AWOL when you most need them. The sister of Jeff Helvin, owner of a catering business, was experiencing this exact scenario at the time. Having already incorporated Cenicola-Helvin Enterprises as the parent company, Mark and Jeff decided to use BannerView.com, originally conceived to sell banner ads, as a solution to her website woes (Yes at one time, banner ads WERE part of the picture). Slowly, the company started taking on more projects and soon was building up an impressive portfolio of clients. Adding Joseph Stanley as programmer solidified the foundation upon which the company would focus; mainly, a reliable and respected resource of eBusiness products and services.
Though Cenicola-Helvin Enterprises would go on to develop a number of other entities over the years, BannerView.com remained the brand most profitable. So much so that in 2007, after years of shared and rented occupancy, the now three executives purchased an impressive 1.1 million dollar technologically advanced data center facility in which to house operations and conduct business. The following year, BannerView.com officially became the name under which the company conducts all business, further positioning themselves as THE resource for all eBusiness needs.
