About the team
At SAP.iO, we’re transforming the way that SAP builds new businesses. Our mission is to empower the innovators that will simplify and transform the way businesses operate. To execute against our mission, we invest, empower, and guide innovators inside and outside of SAP as they build new businesses to change the face of enterprise software. We’re looking for a remote Entrepreneur in Residence (EiR) to join our Entrepreneurs in Residence (EiR) program.
What you’ll do:
Position title: SAP.iO Venture Studio iXp Intern – Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EiR) Intern
Location: Remote / San Francisco, CA
Expected start date: June 7th, 2021 – August 13th, 2021
In this role, you’ll:
With more than €20 billion in annual sales, SAP manages an enormous diversity of businesses. However, moving the needle inside of SAP’s dominant enterprise business requires adding more than incremental innovation – it requires the development of massively disruptive organizations.
SAP.iO’s EiR team is tasked to explore, evaluate, and provide recommendations on solutions to big problems in enterprise software, using SAP’s unique position and differentiated data sources to transform industries ranging from talent management to security. Our recommendations and incubations must be big enough to move the needle at SAP, attack new market opportunities for the company, and be able to be tested through rapid iteration and constant customer feedback. These may be strategic fast follow efforts, ventures aligned to one or more of SAP.iO’s strategic opportunity areas, or venture sourcing through acquihire. Each EiR must have the ability to independently structure thinking and workplans around each potential venture topic and be self-motivated to execute their approach; as well as be willing and eager to provide feedback to other EiR team member’s proposals and collaborate on knowledge exchange.
EiRs will spend the summer searching for and validating their opportunity before pitching it to an SAP investment committee consisting of executives from across the company in order to receive investment upwards of $2.5M in seed stage capital to scale the ventures over time. The startups built within SAP.iO incubation operate differently to traditional corporate business units: General Managers are entrusted with end-to-end responsibilities, teams manage to cash, and Boards provide oversight. In later years, general managers are eligible to receive royalties on the products they develop, and successful ventures have the opportunity to be spun out into new business units within SAP – for example, Spotlight by SAP spun out to establish the business process intelligence unit reporting directly to an executive board member and Ruum by SAP is now our low-code, no-code foundation within the SAP Cloud Platform what is the basis for SAP and SAP Partners to build, extend, and connect SAP applications.
SAP.iO provides the following benefits unique to SAP.iO’s EiR program:
Access and build unique SAP Assets
Build a start-up in enterprise software with less risk than the outside
Advise cutting edge teams
Gain unparalleled insight to SAP strategy and new technologies
Collaborate directly with SAP executives
Prototype quickly with access to SAP customers
EiRs will also have the opportunity to support existing ventures while exploring new opportunities of their own. Potential responsibilities and ventures EiRs have supported in the past include successful venture such as:
Supporting Spotlight by SAP :
• Create the customer success engine for Spotlight and prioritize customer requests
• Pioneer sales enablement through strong content marketing
• Build partnerships and integrations to extend processes beyond SAP systems
Supporting Ruum by SAP :
• Lead the creation of a template library for business users
• Deliver a world class onboarding experience for enterprise customers
• Create a customer support function that will scale with high growth
Successful EiR iXp interns thar receive funding for their idea will be offered a full-time role at the conclusion of their internship to join their venture idea full-time after graduation.
