    Are you ready to move beyond 3F funding? (Family – Friends – Fools)

    Depending on your SAP Startup Focus level of achievement and Stage in the program, we want to help you keep the lights on and get the funding you need. There are no guarantees, but we are here to help when and if it makes sense. Check out some of the funding partners on our alliances page.

    Do you provide funding from Sapphire Ventures?

      For startups who have completed their PoC running on HANA (Stage 2C or higher), we provide a deal-flow introductions to VC’s when and where appropriate. We have numerous examples of startups who have received funding, but we make no guarantees.

    By law, we have an “arms length” relationship with SAPPHIRE Ventures. We make startup referrals to them and they in-kind refer startups to our program. For startups who are Stage 2C or higher, we provide a deal-flow introduction to SAPPHIRE Ventures and they meet with startups to review their potential for funding.
