Frank recounts his experience at being invited to the SAP Supervisory Board Meeting July 9th, 2013:

"When I received the email from Kaustav Mitra, the VP and Global Program Lead for SAP Startup Focus, inviting me to the SAP Supervisory Board Meeting in Palo Alto, I was really surprised.

What a chance for a startup to present to the highest body of -in my opinion - the most important IT company in the world of large corporations!

Since I'm in the business for more than 20 years, I knew that it was something completely unusual. It is absolutely impossible to get a bandwidth of a single person at such a position, not mentioning the opportunity to spend more an hour with a complete collective head of SAP.

My surprise was soon replaced by other feelings. First of all, I was honored by the invitation and secondly, it gave me a satisfaction that what I and my team is doing was valued by the captains of industry.

The Startup Focus Team members – namely Kaustav Mitra, Michelle Hickey, Sophie Chou, Michael Bechauf, Thomas Grassl and Deepak Aher – helped me to make my presentation perfect. I am also grateful to my colleagues Julius Rusnak, Micha Meier and Petra Novakova. Thank you so much for this opportunity!"
