Startup companies, and the investors who want to connect with them, have 10 days left to submit their applications to participate in Investor Speed Dating at the Propelify Innovation Festival, which will be held in-person in Hoboken on Oct. 6.

Selected startups will have the opportunity to pitch to at least five investors individually for five minutes each and hear feedback. Each speed dating session will begin with a panel of investors so that founders can get to know the people they’ll pitch.

Applications close Sept. 17. Startups that meet the investment criteria and have at least three employees will be notified of their selection by Sept. 27. Interested startups can obtain more information and apply online here. Investors seeking to participate can apply here.

Powered by TechUnited NJ, Propelify 2021 will feature inspiring talks, tech, investors, exhibitors, the $100,000 startup competition finales, awards, networking, music, food, drinks, and more. All attendees must show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Since its launch in 2016, Propelify has united 35,000 entrepreneurs and innovators to help propel ideas into action. For more information about the Propelify Innovation Festival, go here.
