Propel Yourself: Hoboken’s Waterfront to Host Massive Innovation Festival (Again)

Year two is here! Last year (formally known as) Propeller, hosted over 8,000 people from all over the northeast region and beyond on Pier A. 43 states and 10 countries were represented at this innovation, technology, and music festival.

This year, due to some legal roadblocks, Propeller has rebranded as Propelify. The idea behind the name, as Propelify Founder, Aaron Price, puts it, is “An airplane without forward motion and lift is just an idea. Idle ideas don’t fly. Let’s propel.”.

Propelify is set to take flight on Thursday, May 18th. Keep your fingers crossed, but if it does rain, there is a back up date of May 19th. If you haven’t discovered it already, this is a weekday, aka a perfect way to show your boss you want to learn and network within the tech community. Nothing like a day “working” in the sun on Hoboken’s waterfront am I right?!

Adam not only enjoys long walks on the beach and romantic comedies (he’s serious), but he also loves playing hockey, hanging out with his pals, and giving self-proclaimed top-notch high fives. When he’s not rooting on his Denver Broncos or USC Trojans, he’s cruising the streets of Hoboken in search of the coldest pint and the cheesiest pizza. His top two life goals are as follows: play on a blob (Heavy Weights, anyone?) and swim in a life size pool of Mac n’ Cheese.
