I have interactions from people associated with startup companies on a reasonably regular basis, and often get asked the same question, "As a startup, how can I engage with SAP?" As the founder or co-founder of a number of startups myself, I can well sympathise with this sentiment - breaking in to large enterprises can be daunting, and the organisations themselves can be labyrinthine.To help answer that I reached out to Christian Boos who is the Global Head of Startup Engagement at SAP, and I invited him on to the show.He gracefully accepted and we had a great chat about startups and SAP - how startups can engage with SAP, what they can get from it, and he gave some excellent examples of startups who have benefitted from it, including one sweet sustainability story.We had great fun putting this podcast together, I hope you enjoy listening to it. If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn. Audio messages will get played (unless you specifically ask me not to).To learn more about how supply chain leaders improve end-to-end supply chain visibility, download the research study of 1,000 COO’s and Chief Supply Chain Officers – “Surviving and Thriving How Supply Chain Leaders minimize risk and maximize opportunities” And if you want to know more about any of SAP's Digital Supply Chain solutions, head on over to and if you liked this show, please don't forget to rate and/or review it.
