The event is only an 8-minute commute away from Manhattan and is steps from the New Jersey Transit Terminal.

After a stunningly successful run last year, the Propelify Innovation Festival will once again unite innovators, entrepreneurs, influencers, marketers, designers, and investors for a one-day carnival of creativity on the Hoboken Waterfront.
As the festival's inspirational maxim suggests, it's here to "propel innovation, propel music, propel thought, propel you." According to Price, attendees shouldn't be puzzled by the fact that Propeller qualifies as a tech festival.Ambitiously dubbed "the SXSW of Northeast" by its founder Aaron Price, Propeller Fest is a one-day tech symposium gathering over 5,000 tech luminaries, investors, startup founders and simply dreamers of big ideas. Price has worked hard to make the event appealing to non-techies as well.Among all the successful entrepreneurs and important keynote speakers (names range from famous angel investor Gary Vaynerchuk to the founder of VP of Product Experience Aziz Hasan), the festival will feature a variety of entertaining attractions: a startup competition, VC speed-dating, gaming zone sponsored by Red Bull, drone races, VR, food trucks, and, of course, exciting musical headliners including Beatie Wolfe and the Bell Labs Human Digital Orchestra followed by the indie electronic band The Naked and Famous.Founder and Hoboken resident Aaron Price (NJ Tech Meetup) has certainly tapped into the zeitgeist of the contemporary innovation movement—in the process, helping to elevate Hoboken’s prominence as a top location for aspiring entrepreneurs. Friday, May 20th, is the day Propeller Festival comes to New Jersey with a line-up of inspiring and informative events for local innovation and tech enthusiasts.
