About the Program

A strong digital supply chain strategy is largely a “behind-the-scenes” organizational function. It can truly differentiate and enable enterprise companies to improve efficiency, effectiveness and be resilient to further, inevitable disruption in the supply chain.

This program is for business to business (B2B) startups with innovative supply chain solutions looking to integrate their solutions with SAP products including SAP S/4HANA, SAP Business Technology Platform and SAP Supply Chain Management (SAP SCM) software. ​

During this 5-month program, selected startups will build and develop long term-partnerships with SAP by defining joint use-cases, product integration and various business development opportunities. SAP customers will also be involved in the program by supporting cohort selection and evaluating opportunities for proof of concepts.
