PYS New York


From June 17-21, Present Your Startup will travel all the way to New York for the third time! During our last visit, Mayor of the City of Haarlem Jos Wienen and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer signed a Memorandum of Intent to strengthen the cooperation and develop closer ties between Haarlem, the Netherlands and Harlem, NY on an economical and cultural level, specifically focusing on areas as innovation & startups and education. In February this year, Gale Brewer visited Haarlem to strengthen ties between the two cities.

Now it is time for Haarlem again to visit New York. It will be a fantastic trip where Dutch and American entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to meet each other and to learn from each other.
