The finalists will participate in the program and receive coaching, connects them with investors and relevant corporates and companies.
This year there was an extraordinary situation, where two finalists ended with equal points, so there are actually six instead of the usual five finalists. This never happened before in the Present Your Startup history, while the event was held for the fourth time in a row. They always aim for finalists who show their entrepreneurial skills and qualities.

Stagefinder – matchmaker between stage and artist
Fiftyco – a mediaplatform for 50+

The six finalists can present themselves during the final pitch event on Wednesday November 22nd, in Pathé Haarlem. Host is John Henry from New York, who sold his first startup when he was 24. Now he’s an investor and he perfectly knows hard it is to succeed as entrepreneur and startup.
