SAP Ventures

SAP Ventures is a leading investment firm that seeks to partner with outstanding entrepreneurs and venture firms worldwide to build industry-leading businesses. The SAP Ventures team has experience investing in primary partnerships and direct opportunities. They are an independent manager affiliated with SAP AG, the leading global enterprise software company, and leverage their relationship with SAP AG and its ecosystem for the benefit of their portfolio companies and underlying fund managers. Their goal is to generate superior financial returns, and their corporate partner also benefits from the exposure to innovative and disruptive companies and trends.


SAP Ventures' strategy is to invest in growth stage information technology companies. They define growth stage companies as those that have a proven product and business model, and have started scaling their revenue. Typically, they invest $5M to $12M initially and can invest significantly larger amounts over the life of a company. They prefer to take an active role, take board seats and lead their investments, but also participate in larger syndicates of investors.


They invest in technology businesses that serve enterprises as customers or have enterprises as go-to market partners. They are also excited about companies which service consumers in their professional lives.


They are looking to partner with the best companies anywhere in the world.  They are particularly keen on companies in the US, Europe, India, Brazil and China. While most of the core investment team is in the US and Europe, they leverage the worldwide presence of their corporate partner, SAP AG, for opportunity sourcing, diligence and value add after the investment process.


They recognize that outstanding entrepreneurs have a significant number of options in regards to how they finance their businesses and seek to add value with their expertise, relationships and geographic reach in addition to their capital.  They believe their corporate partner, SAP AG, and its eco-system significantly differentiate their ability to help businesses grow.
