SAP.iO Foundries have accelerated the growth of over 100 startups.
“As the most innovative country in Asia, Singapore was selected as our first SAP.iO Foundry location in South East Asia to deliver high value to our customers,” said Ram Jambunathan, Managing Director of SAP.iO. “We are excited to work with and help South East Asian startup ecosystem with our value proposition of curated mentorship, exposure to SAP data and technologies, and opportunities to meet and collaborate with SAP unparalleled, global base of enterprise customers.”
