Welcome to the second edition of the SAP.iO x Stanford Executive Education Session. We are lucky to be bringing together some of SAP’s best executives, and we’re very grateful for your support and passion. The purpose of the educational session is three fold:

1

Provide each of you with an understanding of the different purpose and goals of Boards for VC-backed companies. Operating a large company at scale is incredibly complex. When it comes to running and advising high-risk, high-return efforts, the challenges are quite different but no-less complex. It often requires a different style of management, the best example of which can be found in VC-backed efforts, based on this type of growth in mind.
2

Contextualize some of the strategies and best practices of digitally-native software companies. Companies that compete with data assets, leverage network effects, and build recursive or self-reinforcing algorithms that improve with use are different than those that emerged in a traditionally industrial era of competition. Stanford's faculty will aim to provide context and examples to how these businesses can operate.
3

Enable Networking with some of the best executives from across SAP Board Areas. We will provide time and opportunity for you to network, develop relationships, and gain an understanding and appreciation for the types of challenges that these wonderful leaders face in their daily business.
