Propelify has been acquired.
I’m proud to say that the NJ Tech Council (NJTC) has acquired Propelify and I have been appointed as the NJTC’s CEO.
Plus, there’s a complimentary ticket for this year’s Propelify Innovation Festival in this email, but more on that later.
While you may not know the NJTC, it’s one of the largest tech organizations in the nation, representing 500,000 innovators including some of the biggest tech companies in the world.
The NJTC is the OG in this space. Back in 1996 a wise group of leaders formed an association to help drive the impressive tech ecosystem that exists in NJ. For many years it’s been a huge influence in the state, highlighting so many of the great companies and talent that are often overlooked here, an easy thing to happen when you live in the shadow of NYC.
Now, by uniting with the robust entrepreneurial community of Propelify, the NJTC is positioned for a new chapter to empower innovators and entrepreneurs. I’m thrilled to be leading the organization and for what it means for all of us. The NJTC brings with it a respected foundation of major players in tech who want to better get to know, acquire, invest in, hire, and collaborate with you – the Propelify community.
Whether you’re in NJ, NY, or across the globe, you have my promise that I will continue to raise the bar for what you can expect from our tech ecosystem with the same commitment I’ve made to the NJTC Board – a focus on collaboration, excellence, and differentiation.
The Propelify Innovation Festival will absolutely continue, now powered by the NJTC.
And here‘s how to get a scholarship ticket to this year’s Festival –
For this year’s Festival on 10/3 we have an incredible program planned with amazing sponsors, exhibitors, and speakers like Bobbi Brown, Bonin Bough, David Melzer, James Altucher, Nir Eyal, and founders from Boxed, Hubble Contacts, Ro, Super Coffee, Aurify Brands, Lola, Morning Brew, Candid, and so many more. See the full program here.
The NJTC Board and I want the Festival to be as open and accessible as possible. In that spirit, I’m pleased that we will be offering – for a very limited time – a scholarship from the NJTC to provide complimentary tickets for the 2019 Propelify Innovation Festival. My only ask – don’t claim a ticket if you aren’t 100% committed to attend on October 3rd. Claim your NJTC scholarship ticket here.
I’m thrilled to welcome you all back to Pier A in Hoboken on 10/3 to unite and propel one of the best tech communities on the globe. Grab your free ticket and mark your calendar.
CEO, NJ Tech Council
This story has many chapters and wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of so many people. More on that very shortly.
