SAP started in 1972 as a team of five colleagues with a desire to do something new. Together, they changed enterprise software and reinvented how business was done. Today, as a market leader in enterprise application software, we remain true to our roots. That’s why we engineer solutions to fuel innovation, foster equality and spread opportunity for our employees and customers across borders and cultures.
SAP values the entrepreneurial spirit, fostering creativity and building lasting relationships with our employees. We know that a diverse and inclusive workforce keeps us competitive and provides opportunities for all. We believe that together we can transform industries, grow economics, lift up societies and sustain our environment. Because it’s the best-run businesses that make the world run better and improve people’s lives.


About SAP.iO Venture Studio:
At SAP.iO Venture Studio, we’re transforming the way that SAP builds new businesses. We are tasked to create those businesses, using SAP’s unique position and differentiated data sources to transform industries ranging from talent management to security. Our incubations must be big enough to move the needle at SAP, attack new market opportunities for the company, and be able to be tested through rapid iteration and constant customer feedback.
We identify promising talent and ideas, invest between $750K and $2.5M in seed stage capital, and scale the ventures over time. The startups built within the Venture Studio operate differently to traditional corporate business units: General Managers are entrusted with end-to-end responsibilities, teams manage to cash, and Boards provide oversight and regular guidance.
About SAP.iO Intrapreneurship:
The SAP.iO Intrapreneurship team is a strategic pillar of the New Ventures and Technologies group, which is in charge of future-proofing SAP. The SAP.iO Intrapreneurship team has an end-to-end responsibility of all pre- investment activities into the SAP.iO Venture Studio. This includes the identification of interesting opportunity areas for investment; the sourcing and screening of hundreds of early-stage teams applying for investment yearly; the creation of startup curricula to educate innovators on agile methodologies; and preparing phenomenally talented teams to get investment-ready through our yearly flagship accelerator program. Yearly, our small team’s work impacts 25,000 employees at SAP and sources in 3-4 new investments into the SAP.iO Venture Studio.
