SAP.iO No Boundaries is an initiative designed to provide venture capital and acceleration support to underrepresented entrepreneurs in the business software industry – and it is the first of its kind.
The initiative supports groups of B2B software entrepreneurs like women, who have historically received disproportionately less support than other groups. The startups receive tailored mentorship, workshops in pricing, sales, marketing, or design, access to SAP executives and customers and exposure to SAP technologies, including APIs. The team is closely collaborating with internal and external stakeholders, ensuring growth that is focused on value instead of volume. SAP.iO No Boundaries is one of eight finalists of the Hasso Plattner Founders’ Award 2019.
