We Couldn't Have Done It Without You!

Thanks to the generous advertising sponsorship provided by Mainebiz, PROPEL was able to sell over 350 tickets to the first Annual Ignition Awards. This event served as the kick off to an annual platform that PROPEL will use to unite the young professionals of Portland in celebrating the small and large businesses that make our city such a fantastic place to network, develop and live. From the entire PROPEL Board, thank you for being a part of the Ignition Awards!


Below you'll find a short outline of the exposure PROPEL provided Mainebiz through promoting the event, and the event itself!
