Propeller Takes Off in Hoboken As Thousands Learn, Play and Propel Their Startups Forward


The Day in Photos

It was truly an inspiring sight, as thousands of tech innovation enthusiasts converged on Hoboken’s Pier A Friday for talks from top entrepreneurs, tech leaders and celebrated VCs. Fireside chats and presentations ran the gamut from Gary Vaynerchuk’s profanity laced tell-it-like-it-is pronouncements to James Altucher’s directive to write down ten ideas a day.

There was even some wisdom handed out on the “Stage of Wisdom” where folks grappled with topics like how to speak more effectively, how to achieve diversity and how to get more girls to code.

And Beatie Wolfe’s beautiful voice made Bell Labs’ technology, which sampled the movement in the audience, come alive.

NJTechWeekly sent out several reporters to give you their view of what Propeller was like and we’ll be posting their stories and opinions over the next couple of days. But here we’d like to present our view of Propeller, in photos. We’ll have some more photos shortly.
