Hey CX Startups: Applications are open for the SAP.iO Foundry Munich 2019 September cohort!
The SAP.iO Foundry Munich officially launched on May 14th with a gathering of over 100 executives, entrepreneurs, collaborators, and colleagues. Philippe Souidi, Head the new Foundry, moderated the program, which featured insights from Alexa Gorman (SVP, Head of SAP.iO Foundries Europe), Moritz Zimmermann (Chef Technology Officer, SAP Customer Experience), and Eugenio Cassiano (Chief Innovation Officer, SAP Customer Experience). As a bonus, special guest Anna Ritz (Founder & CEO of weview) shared some very candid insights about her experience running a startup and successfully completing the accelerator program with SAP.iO Foundry Berlin. Visitors also had the chance to tour the newly-renovated SAP Customer Experience Labs Showroom & Innovation Space. It was fantastic to bring together the local (and not so local) community around SAP Customer Experience, share the vision and plans, and of course – CELEBRATE! For more impressions of the event, check out the highlight video above and the picture gallery at end of the post.
And now it’s down to business: The Foundry Munich team is looking for B2B SaaS startups to join the 2019 Autumn cohort, beginning mid-September.
As one of the latest startup accelerators to join the global SAP.iO network, it’s offering a no-equity ask enablement program providing mentorship and access to SAP APIs, technologies, customers, and partners. In other words, it’s not about funding – it’s about collaborative business development, knowledge building and sharing, and delivering solutions with purpose!
So if you’re a founder in the customer experience realm interested in taking your startup to the next level, act fast – you’ve got until July 1st to apply: http://sap.to/6018EcnOr
