Dear (local) Community

I am now working in Florian Roth's organization of Intelligent Enterprise Solutions, in the SAP Experience Garage. Our mission is to accelerate SAPs journey to becoming the worlds most innovative place to work. We are enabling our people to experiment, learn, collaborate and innovate to improve the lives of SAP people and our customers.

We want to extend our experiments to the community and want to bring together our SAP Employees with the community, with local businesses, with startups, with students - connecting the  people with technology and innovation to reinvent the future of how we work and live.

You are invited to our business Hackathon in Mannheim (Germany) 28.-30. October 2021!
Over 3 intensive days we coach and inspire a diverse group to collaborate and apply innovation methods exploring the future of work and living in urban areas.


Imagine….you leave home and you know that your office is just a 10 min walk away. Close to where you live, but in an urban environment filled with creative businesses, coffee shops, restaurants and startup offices. Sounds like Berlin or San Francisco? Well, imagine such a place in Mannheim. All you need is an app and your key card. Book your desk and meeting room, access the space with your key card. Meet fellow SAP workers in the space or have a chat with local entrepreneurs or designers over coffee. Even lunch in the neighborhood restaurant of your choice is paid with your keycard. Check out where your colleagues are, meet them for lunch, coffee or a beer at one of the after-work events. In addition, you're saving gas, money, time. Life could be so easy...

This is just one of many stories around our hackathon tracks
