Season 2 of Progress Connect Webinar Series: Business Growth Hacking

For the past four years Progress Partners and Progress Ventures have built up our annual event, Progress Connect, as a gathering of great magnitude with executives, investors and leaders from the Progress Partners and Progress Ventures network. Now faced with a fundamental shift in life as we know it, both in the near and long term, we have determined that it is not prudent for us to schedule such an event this year.

Rather, we see great opportunity to bring together leading minds to discuss and deliver perspective, provocation, and guidance for all to hear. Progress Connect is continuing the ?going virtual? concept with a second season (!) of webinars focused on Business Growth Hacking – designed to bring elevated thought and conversation around key subjects.
