Handshakes on Deals

Handshake 2.0 launched five months ago.

In that time, we’ve featured almost 30 companies and organizations.  We've mentioned – and provided those oh-so important links to – dozens more.  We’ve shared the wisdom of local business pundits, from VT KnowledgeWorks director Jim Flowers, to Valley Business FRONT editor Dan Smith, to regionalism advocate Stuart Mease.

Handshake 2.0 was born of a deep belief in the power of “It’s who you know.”  Increasingly, “It’s still who you know” online.  By showcasing companies, company leaders, and business thought leaders online, we do our best to extend the power of the network of “It’s who you know.” 

We hope who you get to know on Handshake 2.0 results in handshakes on deals.
