Startup Focus at SAPPHIRENOW 2015

Startup Focus Presence at SAPPHIRENOW

SAPPHIRENOW is always big, with thousands of SAP employees, customers, analysts, press & media, and unique to the Startup Focus team, big data and predictive analytics startups in attendance. For Startup Focus this year, the SAPPHIRENOW conference promises even more engagement, excitement, and traction with SAP customers. For the first time ever many of the startups in attendance will be bringing their customers, including the large enterprise brands Cargill, Genentech, and Glazers. Shared startup-customer presentations will focus on lessons learned, best practices, industry outlooks, and why startups play a deep and continued role in the long term sustainability of large enterprise customers. As part of the team’s engagement with SAP’s premier customer user group, ASUG, startups will also have unprecedented access to a host of enterprise CIOs and leadership. During the multiple sessions held in the ASUG Hub, Startup Focus will define new use cases and facilitate new opportunities to design, build, test, and scale new startup products together with startups and customers.


  • SAP Startup Focus will host 22 presentations in the ASUG area, where startups and customers will present use cases
  • A demo station on the main show floor will showcase all market-ready startup solutions
