We bring together Portland’s young professionals.

I am an entrepreneur, and I know that nothing exists in a vacuum. It is so important to get out of the office, meet people, find out what they do, and share a bit of yourself. You never know whom you will meet, or what a new contact could lead to - getting out and about can only increase your chances of making a great connection!
Nate Huckel-Bauer, Drummond & Drummond, LLP - PROPEL Board Member
Whether you're looking to build your career, become a part of the community or simply meet interesting people, PROPEL is a great place to do it. PROPEL events, ranging from educational lunches and fun networking events to sit-down dinners at the best restaurants in town, are all affordable and accessible and filled with others sharing similar goals.
Matt Jacobson, J.S. McCarthy Printers
I had been getting to know people through PROPEL, so when I realized that I needed a career change I had already established professional contacts and friendships so I felt comfortable talking with my them about my situation. You can’t be afraid to use your network but you have to establish trust and a relationship first.
Liz Riley, Portland Sea Dogs
Through my involvement with PROPEL I’ve created friendships and business relationships with young people committed to living and working in Maine.
Justin Lamontagne, NAI The Dunham Group
PROPEL offers a great way to get to know other young people in the community and expand your circle. The business relationships and referrals are there too and they flow naturally after you’ve established a relationship.
