Propeller is the driver of our initial success. Ninety percent of ideas lose momentum and don’t go anywhere because execution is so hard. Propeller is the reason we have been able to achieve our initial success and feel confident that we can launch our pilot to scale.

Propeller’s Accelerator Program far exceeded expectations. Propeller’s connections to business leaders and pro-bono network combined with the lead mentor coaching sessions were valuable to our company’s success, and significantly decreased the time needed to build and launch our company. We are forever grateful for Propeller and expect future ventures in New Orleans to receive tremendous value from Propeller.
