Haarlem and Harlem, two of the few places in the world with almost the same name. There is a historical relationship to be strengthened on the topics of innovation & startups, education & talent and culture & music. Muurmeesters is joining the Present Your Startup New York in May.
Last year (2016) Haarlemvalley established multiple relationships within the Harlem community thanks to Silicon Harlem, the borough president of Manhattan Gale Brewer and our deputy mayor of Haarlem Joyce Langenacker.
