Our vision for the OPEN New York Metro chapter is simple: To provide Pakistani-American professionals, entrepreneurs, youth and the business community, in the New York area, an ecosystem of support for business launch and growth.

We want to be the "one-stop shop" for supporting the thousands of Pakistani-Americans in our area, whether it is around mentorship for youth, professional development for entrepreneurs and professionals, networking for executive and business owners, fund-raising for startups, creating links between US and Pakistan businesses, or serving as a network of advisors with a wide range of skills and expertise.

To our community, the message is clear: this is your chapter. What you get out of it, is driven largely by your initiative in reaching out for support. Let's grow together.
