Following the global launch of the Student Entrepreneurship Program of SAP University Alliances earlier this year, SAP introduced the initiative in India at the BMS College of Engineering (BMSCE) in Bangalore. 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.
SAP introduced the program at BMSCE on Thursday, on the occasion of SAP APJ President Adaire Fox-Martin's visit to the campus to address students on entrepreneurship. Under this program, it is expected that there will be development of 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 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 Adaire Fox-Martin, President, SAP APJ. "We are pleased to work with BMSCE to launch the Student Entrepreneurship Program of SAP in India and promote technology entrepreneurship among their students."
"Blessed with smart students, a diligent and result oriented staff, the challenge for BMSCE is to nurture students to learn the art of delivering swift and accurate engineering solutions expected by the industry. With solutions and mentoring from SAP, our students are poised to learn and adapt themselves to the constantly changing scenarios posed by the industry." said Dr. Ravishankar, As. Dean, Placements, BMS College of Engineering.
