September 27, 2023SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today launched a virtual startup program focused on sustainability and energy management at SAP.iO Foundry Munich. A jury of experts from SAP, alongside SAP partners and customers evaluated numerous applicants and selected 12 startups to join the program.

The energy and natural resources industries have undergone a significant transformation in recent years, moving from centralized fossil fuel-based operations to a more decentralized and diverse landscape powered by renewables. This shift has been driven by environmental concerns and technological innovations that promise to make extraction and processing more efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable. The movement requires companies to develop intelligent solutions for energy generation and storage, water management, and circular production processes, while striving for energy efficiency in their own operations.

During the five-month, equity-free program, SAP will work with the selected startups to integrate and jointly offer solutions for this new more sustainable reality. The startups will receive curated mentorship, access to SAP® technology and application programming interfaces (APIs), and exposure to SAP customers with the opportunity to develop high-impact proofs of concept.

The following startups are participating in the program at SAP.iO Foundry Munich:

  1. CibusCell provides a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform to companies in the hydrogen value chain for analyzing potentials, digitizing processes, and optimizing production and collaboration.
