Kiel Olver

Kiel is the founder of Propel, an asset management platform that enables hotels and gyms to offer new and unique amenities while generating revenue from their costly and often under-utilized facilities. With a passion for user experience and product design, Kiel studied integrated engineering at UBC, a program that allowed him to design and build everything from 3D mapping drones to smart motorcycle helmets. His work on an electric drag racing VW beetle and later founding UBC's Formula Electric team led him to a variety of interesting internships, from working as a field engineer in the Albertan oil sands to designing parts at Tesla Motors. Kiel enjoys karaoke, podcasts, motorcycles, and disrupting the status quo.
