Just over three hours from New York City, over 7,500 engineers are pursuing US-accredited academic

degrees in Puerto Rico. This same talent stream, which attracted the biopharmaceutical and aerospace industries to the island, is now fueling a global entrepreneurial vision. The Startups of Puerto Rico Showcase is the rst opportunity for this startup community to blend with the vibrant innovation ecosystem of the Big Apple. Featuring four startups and three speakers from Puerto Rico, the event aims to be a cornerstone for an enduring bridge between these hubs.
