Idle ideas don’t fly; let’s propel.
Propelify Innovation Festival founder and TechUnited: New Jersey CEO Aaron Price has been saying that since he launched the one-day all-star event, when over 10,000 people came to Hoboken in 2016, and he hasn’t looked back.
This year, on Oct. 6, thousands are expected to join the epic Propelify at Maxwell Place Park in Hoboken, where amazing speakers like Jeff Hoffman, co-founder, Priceline; Amanda Cassatt, Serotonin co-founder & CEO and Mojito co-founder & president; and Y-Vonne Hutchinson, founder and CEO, ReadySet; plus dozens more, will take the stage, in addition to incredible sponsors, music, food, drinks, drones, venture capitalists, and all things tech and business.
Founders, C-suite leaders and industry experts will share their insights and innovators will unite to celebrate what’s new and create what’s next with inspiration, education and interactive experiences.
The event celebrates innovation and entrepreneurship, giving thousands of attendees a unique opportunity to connect, learn and propel their businesses.

Plus, it’s fun,” Price said.
