“I’m proud to bring the tech ecosystem of the Northeast to Hoboken,” said Aaron Price, a Hoboken resident and founder of Propelify and the NJ Tech Meetup. “Our beautiful and convenient city is a perfect place to unite the tech, startup, and corporate innovation community. We all know how hard it is to convince New Yorkers to cross the river in our direction! I’m thrilled that we welcomed thousands from NJ, NY, and even 43 other states and 10 countries to our hometown for the Innovation Festival last year. It’s an honor to collaborate with the Mayor and the City to show off the mile square for Propelify again.”
