SAP has launched the Student Entrepreneurship Program of SAP University Alliances in India at the BMS College of Engineering (BMSCE) in Bangalore.
The announcement comes on the heels of the global launch of the program globally earlier this year. The SAP University Alliances program opens up the world of SAP to more than 1,800 universities in more than 80 countries worldwide.
The program encourages student entrepreneurs and early start-ups to use SAP’s technology platform to develop new applications and launch successful start-up ventures.
The launch coincides with SAP APJ president Adaire Fox-Martin’s visit to the campus BMSCE on Thursday, to address students on entrepreneurship.
The program aims to guide students develop new solutions across SAP’s platform technologies, leveraging on the company’s in-memory platform SAP HANA, the SAP Mobile Platform, and analytics capabilities.
“Through BMSCE and the Student Entrepreneurship Program, students of the institute will gain access to these technologies, SAP experts, mentors, and an entrepreneurship curriculum,” SAP said.
“SAP has been helping customers run better in the fast-growing APJ region for the last 25 years. Our presence has spurred the development of a diverse ecosystem of IT companies both in India and within the larger APJ market,” said Fox-Martin at the launch.
“We are pleased to work with BMSCE to launch the Student Entrepreneurship Program of SAP in India and promote technology entrepreneurship among their students,” Fox-Martin added.
Commenting on this partnership, Dr. Ravishankar, As. Dean, Placements, BMS College of Engineering, said, “With solutions and mentoring from SAP, our students are poised to learn and adapt themselves to the constantly changing scenarios posed by the industry.”
