Propelify Innovation Festival – May 18, 2017

Community: Hoboken Residents Invited to 2nd Annual Propelify Innovation Festival

The City of Hoboken is proud to welcome back the Propelify Innovation Festival on the Hoboken waterfront. Last year over 8,000 attendees from around the tri-state united in Hoboken for a day advancing innovation and technology.

“The City of Hoboken is a great home to innovators including Jet.com, eMazzanti, GovPilot, Flow.io, Stevens Institute of Technology, the NJ Tech Meetup, and more,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “We’re excited to welcome back the Propelify community and bring this opportunity to our residents to learn more about tech companies and perhaps even find a new career.”

As a sponsor and host city, the City of Hoboken is offering residents preferred pricing. Residents can use code hoboken07030 for 75% off a limited number of tickets.

Here’s what you can expect at Propelify on May 18th:

  • 40+ speakers across 2 stages
  • Onsite tech recruiting from Jet.com (on a ferris wheel!)
  • Investor Speed Dating
  • Startup Competition with prizes including $10K in cash and more
  • Drone Races
  • Startup/Tech Exhibitors
  • Lounges from Alley, wework, Jet
  • VR Theater by Samsung
  • Food, drinks, music, and more

“I’m proud to bring the tech ecosystem of the Northeast to Hoboken,” said Aaron Price, a Hoboken resident and founder of Propelify and the NJ Tech Meetup. “Our beautiful and convenient city is a perfect place to unite the tech, startup, and corporate innovation community. We all know how hard it is to convince New Yorkers to cross the river in our direction! I’m thrilled that we welcomed thousands from NJ, NY, and even 41 other states and 10 countries to our hometown for the Innovation Festival last year. It’s an honor to collaborate with the Mayor and the City to show off the mile square for Propelify again.”

As Propelify’s motto states, idle ideas don’t fly. Let’s propel Hoboken!
