Think beyond funding. Leverage the expertise of industry leaders to innovate and grow


This announcement is promoted by SAP.

For SAP a market leader in enterprise application software, innovation is a crystal clear goal and not just an ideal, because their innovation is measurable.

How? By the boost in revenue the innovation brings. In the last few years, through a number of bold moves, SAP has reinvented itself to position the organisation even more strongly as ‘future ready and innovative.’ A real-life example of how SAP’s innovation mantra accelerated its own business was the launch of SAP HANA, an in-memory computing architecture solution. By pitching itself strongly among other industry players, SAP has been able to drive revenue and grow its software business.

As a startup, it is essential to learn more about how global organisations like SAP are innovating, reinventing, and bringing the next big idea to life. You too could do that at the SAP Startup Social – SAP’s flagship event for the startup ecosystem in India – on June 23 in Bengaluru.

Leaders at the event will include Bernd Leukert, member of the Executive Board at SAP, Products & Innovation, and Dilipkumar Khandelwal, Managing Director, SAP Labs India and Executive Vice President, Enterprise Cloud Services, SAP SE who will share comprehensive first-hand insights on technology and innovation.

From Internet of Things (IoT) to design and user experience, Bernd Leukert will be the go-to man for all your queries at the meet. In addition to shouldering global responsibility for development and delivery of all products across SAP’s product portfolio, Leukert heads strategic innovation initiatives at SAP, driving the development of new growth opportunities.

The day-long event will witness key industry leaders, founders of Unicorn startups, startup evangelists, and key stakeholders from the investor community share their views on what makes an idea big and how startups can innovate for a better tomorrow.

Aiming to be a flagship platform for driving thought leadership in the startup ecosystem, Startup Social is bringing key influencers of the Indian startup community like Shraddha Sharma, Founder and CEO, YourStory Media, to speak at the event. These thought leaders will tell you more about their entrepreneurial journey, experiences during various stages of startup journey – launch, funding, scaling and the risks involved. With a session focused on scaling, you will get insights from startup unicorns on aspects such as cracking the growth engine, startup hacks in real world, product positioning, and allied areas.

The event also offers an opportunity for a few select startups to showcase their products and get them validated by VCs during the pitching session.

But the biggest reason you should attend SAP Startup Social is because it helps founders, entrepreneurs, and aspirants, improve ideas and entrepreneurial skills. This is especially important considering 2016 has been a challenging year in the Indian startup ecosystem. While startups need to adapt to the evolving startup climate, this event will be a platform to leverage and capitalise on the expertise and experiences of founders, investors, and pioneers of the startup community, and think just beyond funding!

Listen to the real startup stories. Get to network with leaders who can help you navigate the bumpy roads of the startup journey. Interact with startup evangelists. Grab the chance to get your product validated by the investor community. Learn all about innovation from thethose who made it happen. All that and more at the first edition of SAP Startup Social on June 23 in Bengaluru.
