IT.Stadt präsentiert: STEP NYC Alumnitreffen

STEP NYC “Mainhattan Pitch Night” on June 16, 16 in Frankfurt.

STEP NYC is a very successful 5-day bootcamp organized by the German American Chamber of Commerce New York that takes place 4 times a year in Manhattan.
So far, we have conducted STEP NYC 7 times and welcomed around 90 German startups from all over the federal republic to the Big Apple.
In the meantime, 20 of the alumni have founded a U.S. subsidiary and 15 of them have made it into one of the German Accelerator 3-months programs.
