(Editor’s Note: This report has been updated with an adjusted date, location and other information.)

The 2021 Propelify Innovation Festival will be held as in-person, outdoor event Oct. 6 at Maxwell Place Park in Jersey City, organizers announced Thursday.

The event will have a rain date of Oct. 7.

Aaron Price, the creator of the event and CEO of TechUnited: New Jersey, said the event will require those in attendance to provide proof of vaccination. There will be a virtual version streamed as well, he said.

Price, of course, is hoping to have everyone on site — a site he says is easily reached from around the state and New York City using public transportation.

“As one of the world’s largest tech events, now powered by TechUnited, we’re excited to be hosting Propelify back in person to unite innovators who propel ideas into action,” he said. “With our wide range of partners ranging from companies big and small, we all see how technology is inventing the future.”

“For entrepreneurs who want to build their companies faster and smarter, Propelify is the place for you,” he said. “For investors, who want early access to the deals they’ll read about in the headlines, we’ll see you there.  

“And for larger companies and innovators who want a front-row seat to the talent and innovations that will disrupt their industry, Propelify must not be missed.”
