The SAP.iO Foundries program, launched in April, has announced its first event, a demo day at which nine enterprise technology startups led by women will present.

The SAP.iO Foundries global program focuses on helping grow and scale early-stage companies by providing tailored mentoring and access to SAP’s customer base and technology.

The nine presenting companies, including Amberdata, CN2, dMetrics, Lately, Narrativ, NopSec, StyleSage, Sundar, and Ziggeo, span diverse industries and technologies including machine learning, blockchain, next-generation supply chain and extended reality technology.

“SAP.iO Foundry in New York City is helping women and minority entrepreneurs scale their startups in the competitive environment of B2B technology,” said Deepak Krishnamurthy, chief strategy officer, SAP. “With New York becoming a hub for promising startups focused on enterprise tech, the SAP.iO Foundry is a true showcase of SAP’s commitment to building an inclusive and innovative startup ecosystem around SAP products and solutions.”

Current SAP.iO Foundries are in major startup hubs, including Paris, Berlin, Tel Aviv, New York City and San Francisco.
