Propelify, a gathering of innovation, tech, speakers, investors, and other startup-minded attendees returns in just ten days. Billed as one of the biggest innovation gatherings in the Northeast, it brings together folks from all seemingly connected areas.

This year promises to be quite the affair as it offers up some 40+ speakers across two stages. Taking place on May 18 in Hoboken, New Jersey, the festival will play host to all sorts of great things, including drone races, startup/tech exhibitors, VR Theather (Samsung), music, food, drinks, and much more.
