Check out this galactic exclusive from Spiffy with Max Kahn, the head of startup ecosystem development at SAP.iO. Let’s learn what’s happening at SAP.iO and how Max is making a positive impact in the world.
Spiffy: Thanks for joining me, Max! Tell me, what challenge are you addressing through SAP.iO?
Max Kahn: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Some of the biggest challenges facing companies looking to adopt emerging technologies is integration, security, and access. We launched SAP.iO to make it as easy as possible for SAP’s customer base to adopt new solutions in record time. To do this, our global team helps enterprise software startups partner with SAP and integrate their solutions to enable their growth. In addition, SAP recognized that driving inclusive entrepreneurship in the enterprise software and VC industries could accelerate innovation, reduce bias, and drive better outcomes. That’s why we committed to ensuring 45% of our portfolio companies are founded or led by women and underrepresented entrepreneurs.
Spiffy: How cool! What motivates you to do it?
Max Kahn: Helping customers solve big challenges while enabling entrepreneurs to become wildly successful is extremely fulfilling. I love the ability to see the direct impact of my work and the ability to learn new things every day.
