For the next six months, 65 SAP volunteers in France will support the promotion of eight startups selected by the incubator for their social and environmental impact and their use of digital solutions.
SAP mentors support entrepreneurs in each startup with the technology components to help them get the most out of their prototyping and business phase to consolidate their model and market approach. All the functions of the company are represented: sales, R & D, marketing, communication, HR, and more.
At SAP France, we believe that digital can bring people together. The program affects all levels of the company. Whether they are young talents or members of the executive committee, they all commit themselves and have something to contribute to make a project grow. Through the sponsorship of skills, internal teams reinforce and give meaning to their missions. This has an impact on motivation since 81% of millenial mentors say they stay at SAP in part for this and 95% of business mentors say they are happier at work. 84% have this feeling of having a positive impact on society.Caroline Garnier, Director of Human Resources SAP
The 8 startups supported by SAP employees are:

We are more and more numerous at SAP France to invest in this project. The 124 different employees hired for the last 3 years see it as a real opportunity to develop from a professional and personal point of view. This allows everyone to contribute to changing the world and creating a positive social impact. It is a real pleasure to support entrepreneurs who implement solutions that transform sustainable concepts into concrete actions in order to benefit the greatest number.Antoine Clément, Mentoring Manager, SAP France Foundation
