The Startup Focus Forum Brasil happened at SAP Labs Latin America on June 16th, bringing together startups, accelerators, angel investors and students with the aim of encouraging the exchange of knowledge and promote connections among the Startups ecosystem.
Participants had the pleasure of listening to an opening speech by Luka Mucic, member of the Executive Board and CFO of SAP. Also, Manju Bansal – SAP Startup Focus Outreach & Engagement Lead – delivered a keynote on the Startup Focus Program worldwide.
Some of the program’s current startups (E-beauty, Aegro, Brabov and Huru Systems) had the chance to talk about the experience they’ve had with the program so far. Later on, participants watched presentations on building ecosystems for global innovation and IoT with SAP HANA.
8 different Startups that wanted to expose their ideas were given the chance to present 5-minute pitches, while competing for an Innovation, Pitch and Business Model Awards.
After this inspiring afternoon, everyone got together to empower their networking and have fun at a Happy Hour 🙂
