I recently had the opportunity to attend the first ever Propeller Fest in New York and let's just say I propelled my way through this awesome tech, music and startup festival
Propeller Fest prides itself on creating a like-minded community of entrepreneurs. It's main mantra is "Idle ideas don't fly". The three pillars of the festival are inspiration, education and fun. From startup pitches to drone competitions to live bands - this festival is truly spectacular!
Here is an overview of the festival
did someone say drones? check out these beauties!
there was even a drone race at the festival!
I met these incredible start up companies servicing the startup industry
Have to give a special shout out to Joli Beauty Bar in New york for their hair and make up services - thank you gurls for making me camera ready!!
I met some truly incredible entrepreneurs - visionaries and investors at the festival too!
Here is a sneak peak at my interviews with Gerard Adams CoFounder of Elite Daily, Lori Cheek - Founder of the Dating app Cheekd and Peter Shankman serial entrepreneur and Founder of Help a Reporter Out
With Gerard Adams - so fun interviewing this inspirational entrepreneur

Meeting Lori Cheek was a real hoot! She says she is no longer building structures she is building relationships! Her bluetooth location based dating app is super sleek.
