Innovating our business – and the lives of others
Innovating through technology – that is what we do and what makes us successful. But with our knowledge and experience, we can do more than drive our own success: we can help create economic opportunity for people throughout the world.
These two goals appear to us as one and the same: Our own future depends on our ability to build new markets, to cultivate talent, and to encourage entrepreneurship – because this in return fuels the creation of jobs, economic growth, and the demand for IT services.
Here’s how we help
• Engage your Talent. We create volunteering opportunities where you can use your skills and learn and develop at the same time.
• Leverage Technology. We use our technology to support emerging entrepreneurs and non-profits.
• Provide Capital. We offer strategic funding for underserved youth. In addition, we provide operational support and technology infrastructure for emerging entrepreneurs.
“It’s easy to get stuck with what you know,” says Gabriele Hartmann, director of Corporate Social Responsibility for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. “Social responsibility helps bring SAP closer to society – but it also brings the best of society into SAP.”
