The teams task was to manage a fleet of pedicabs around New York City. Versa corp used the women as their strategy to lure people in and also sell advertisement on the carts.

The project manager for Versa corp, Amy, was beginning to be pushy as a leader which led to some differences between team members.

Versa corp’s strategy to sell advertisement proved they were the better team which brought in more revenue than Protege.
