Under the signed MoU, B Capital’s portfolio companies will benefit from a joint go-to-market strategy (GTM) as well as access to SAP’s global reach, resources, business networks and best practices. They will also be able to learn more about and evaluate SAP’s suite of enterprise solutions, including fit-to-standard cloud offerings such as GROW with SAP, that are designed to help SMEs and start-ups scale quickly. The collaboration aims to offer B Capital’s portfolio companies tailored, end-to-end support for their software solutions, helping progress them through development to being available for purchase on the SAP Store, an online marketplace of software solutions from SAP and its partners, available in more than 200 countries and territories globally.
