SAP NEWSBYTESAP introduced the Student Entrepreneurship Program in Singapore at National University of Singapore (NUS) School of Computing, following the global launch earlier this year. The program encourages student entrepreneurs and early start-ups to use SAP’s technology platform to develop new applications and launch successful start-up ventures.

Launching this program with NUS School of Computing, Adaire Fox-Martin, President of SAP Asia Pacific Japan visited the School to address students on innovation and entrepreneurship. “The NUS School of Computing is a furnace of innovation and entrepreneurship in Singapore and across the region. We are pleased to work with the School of Computing to promote technology entrepreneurship and fuel innovation among the young generation,” said Fox-Martin.

Chairperson of NUS School of Computing’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Committee, Professor Juzar Motiwalla said, “The NUS School of Computing has a vibrant entrepreneurial student community. New disruptive applications in enterprises are expected to emerge in the next few years, and the new initiative by SAP to support student entrepreneurs will significantly improve their judgment of the business opportunity and increase their confidence as they set about building a viable business.”

Under this program, it is expected that there will be development of new solutions across SAP’s platform technologies, leveraging on the company’s in-memory platform SAP HANA, the SAP Mobile Platform, and analytics capabilities. Through the collaboration between the SAP Student Entrepreneurship program and NUS School of Computing, students will gain access to these technologies, SAP experts, mentors and an entrepreneurship curriculum.

“SAP has been helping customers run better in Asia for the last 25 years. Our presence has spurred the development of a diverse ecosystem of IT companies both in Singapore and within the region,” said Fox-Martin. “SAP supports the development of skills for the next generation of leaders. We want to create a community in which millennials are empowered to dream big and point the way to a digital future.”

The Student Entrepreneurship program is an extension of the SAP University Alliances program. The SAP University Alliances program opens up the world of SAP to more than 1,800 universities in more than 80 countries worldwide, and aims to develop highly qualified graduates with critical skills for the 21st century workforce. Through a community of over 8,000 faculty members as well as engagement at over 750 events annually, SAP University Alliances has inspired students around the world about SAP.
