Dozens of past clients, associates, and friends of the firm gathered at Cinquecento in Boston's South End to celebrate 15 years of business for Progress Partners. We celebrated with great food and cocktails, and toasted to the partners with champagne and cake following a few words from each of the partners. Nick, Sam, Chris, and Rick thank all those who attended and look forward to the continued celebration throughout the year.


Progress Connect - Cocktails after Mobile World Congress

February 28, 2017 | Barcelona, Spain

Following the day at Mobile World Congress, dozens of industry leaders from leading technology and digital media companies joined the Progress Partners team for wine and cocktails on their rooftop deck in the centrally located and chic Eixample neighborhood before heading off to their dinners.

Thank you to everyone who could attend, and to those who were unable to make it, the team hopes to see you next year!




Progress Partners is pleased to announce our inaugural Progress Connect, which took place on October 27, 2016 at The Liberty Hotel in our hometown of Boston.

Progress Connect was a day of interactive discussions, distillations of leading practices, and applications of technology, leveraging the deep industry experience and entrepreneurial heritage of our network. The event hosted 275+ attendees and speakers from a select community of industry and investment peers, market visionaries and influential CEOs. True to the Progress Connect name and the history of our firm, this was a great opportunity for the exchange of ideas with industry leaders while building meaningful connections.

Progress Partners hosted our first annual Video Data dinner at Claudette, featuring CEOs and senior leaders from a variety of top industry firms. 

From CEO of Industry Maps and Senior Associate at Progress Partners, Davis Rosborough said "the Progress Video Data Dinner last night was a huge success," going on to say "there was one sustained, engaging group conversation lasting from the hummus appetizer through the closing double espressos."

Our founder and Senior Managing Director, Nick MacShane, played emcee for the night and steered the conversation to cover a wide range of topics, key to the evolving role data is playing in the video space.

We look forward to having more events like this in the coming months!
