"I participated in three Accelerator programs and a pitch competition and I have benefited immensely from each one of them. All of Propeller's programing is relevant and useful and the staff is very knowledgeable and quite capable. I cannot overstate the value of being a Propeller Alum and all the connections and opportunities that stem from it."
