Our teams remain laser-focused on delivering innovative, high quality communications campaigns to help clients reach their marketing, brand and business objectives. This focus and drive in 2016 resulted in one of the agency’s best years yet, and we are excited about our future."

Within the walls of Version 2.0’s Boston and New York City offices, the team continued to grow, with the addition of new employees at various levels.

Empowering Women in Business
Version 2.0 continued its commitment to empowering women in business by releasing two additional installments of its “Women Mean Business” series, building on the 2015 release of its inaugural Boston infographic. The New York and San Francisco versions evaluated women in leadership positions in these two coastal hubs, from growth and opportunities to the local support systems available to female entrepreneurs.
Version 2.0 continued its support of discussions focused on gender in the workplace by sponsoring Capital W, a women's leadership conference, for the second year in a year. Additionally, Version 2.0’s Co-Founders and Partners, Maura FitzGerald and Jean Serra, were named to an esteemed list of the top 40 female business leaders in Boston by SmartCEO.
