Rave

Version 2.0 Communications has added Rave Mobile Safety to its client roster. Version 2.0 has been brought on to help build the company’s profile nationally, with a focus on demonstrating the value of its solutions through customer stories and thought leadership. The agency managed Rave’s inclusion in an “ABC News Nightline” broadcast segment about the role technology is playing in helping police, 911 centers and other first responders better interact with those with autism or mental health conditions. In April, Rave received a significant investment from TCV, a growth equity firm that backs such tech companies as Netflix, Facebook, Spotify and Airbnb. Version 2.0 will work to favorably position Rave among its peers in TCV’s portfolio.
