PROPELIFY 2024: RETURNING TO OUR ROOTS

Now more than ever before, we’re focused on showcasing the founders propelling ideas into action at this year’s edition of the Propelify Innovation Festival. The main stage will feature pitches from cutting edge Pre-Seed, Seed, and Series A startups as well as talks focused on fundraising and ensuring the next generation of startups succeed.

We hope to see you there to be inspired, awed, and invested in the growth of our startup community.
