NFTE recognizes SAP as our Innovation Partner, for SAP’s philanthropic commitment to youth development, celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit, and belief in the transformative power of tech-entrepreneurship for underserved youth across the United States.

As a leading technology company helping the world run more efficiently and improving people’s lives, SAP has proven the power of innovation and solution-driven business. SAP has been a proud supporter of NFTE for more than ten years. In 2017, SAP will expand their partnership to invest in Startup Tech classrooms across three NFTE program offices, including the Bay Area, Chicago and Philadelphia.

“We are pleased to build upon our decade-long support for NFTE with a pledge of $1 million to expand the Startup Tech entrepreneurship course,” said Kyle Garman, SVP, Global Business Development, SAP and NFTE Board Member. “The technology industry continues to experience tremendous growth, at a rate that is quickly outpacing the number of qualified workers available. That’s why programs like Startup Tech are incredibly important to inspire young people to develop the entrepreneurial mindset and technical skills today so they can become the technology leaders of tomorrow. Our mission at SAP is to improve people’s lives, and by partnering with NFTE to bring Startup Tech to more regions of the country we’re doing precisely that.”
