Social and Inclusive Entrepreneurship

Aspiring to a world powered by innovative entrepreneurship.

Helping corporate business grow through purpose-driven innovation

Social and inclusive entrepreneurship is the fabric of economic growth and the engine of humanitarian and environmental impact. With humanitarian missions and minority business at their core, social entrepreneurs enable corporates to pull levers in order to enact social change and leadership. 

Achieving a better kind of growth by partnering with social enterprises to marry profit with social impact.

To support this shift in how we think about success, growth, and profits, we’ve established a platform called One Billion Lives dedicated to bringing corporates, social entrepreneurs, consumers, and governments together to help scale the social entrepreneurship movement across the world. 

Nonprofit partnerships and inclusive entrepreneurship

For more than a decade, SAP has been establishing trust and building capacity for social enterprises, from inspiring early-stage innovation and new ventures with partners like We Are Family Foundation, to accelerating and scaling mature social enterprises.
