If you want your products to conquer big data, enable your customers run faster and make smarter decisions then the SAP Startup Focus Program could be a great opportunity to enhance your products with SAP HANA in-memory technologies and make your products run hundred thousand times faster.
If you are a startup or a company with revenue under 40M and you have a product that could benefit from in-memory technologies then join the program and get up to 65K in licenses, IP and supporting activities to build a proof of concept.
SAP is one of the top brands in the world. Based on how compelling is the proof of concept further opportunities could include co-branded positioning, demand generation and general awareness. We will be actively recommending most promising startups to SAP Ventures.
How do I start?
Come to our first SAP Startup Focus Forum, an event where you can present your products, discuss big data trends, learn how in-memory technologies can make a difference for you and explore support options and funding opportunities for your startup.
- When: September 6th 2012 from 9:00 –18:00

What happens next?
From the forum, six to ten promising firms will be invited to join a development accelerator. The objective is to help you to build a Proof of Concept and, eventually, a product with explicit business value. Startups are selected based on desirability, feasibility and viability of their products.
The accelerator kicks off with an intensive boot camp on SAP HANA development topics. Once development is underway, we support participants with regular architecture reviews, technical support and consulting. We offer scheduled ‘office hours’ for technical teams to dial-in, an inclusive network of HANA experts and a private community to discuss challenges and share experiences.
The SAP Startup Focus is working closely with SAP Ventures to identify and cultivate groundbreaking startups who can deliver high quality solutions to real-world problems using HANA. While the Startup Focus does not fund startups (other than with program support) and participation in the program does not guarantee venture funding, the program will actively be recommending promising startups to SAP Ventures.
