Immerse selected to join new Future of Work accelerator programme launched by SAP

22 Apr, 2021

Immerse has been chosen to take part in a new virtual accelerator programme being hosted by SAP.iO Foundry San Francisco. The Spring 2021 Future of Work programme aims to support the growth of six startups that are focussed on revolutionising the HR technology space. 

The programme is offered in conjunction with SAP SuccessFactors solutions, providing world-leading cloud-based human resources (HR) software. Immerse has an established relationship with this branch of the SAP family, having partnered with them to deliver scalable virtual reality (VR) training solutions for businesses.

Jill Popelka, president of SAP SuccessFactors, says: “Our customers recognise the need to embrace innovative, cloud-based technologies to advance how they engage their workforce. Our partner ecosystem, including the companies selected for the SAP.iO programme, brings new and creative ways to help our customers address today’s most important workplace challenges, such as diversity, equity and inclusion, learning, well-being, and more.”

Taking part in this programme alongside Immerse are five fellow startups innovating in the areas of recruitment, talent and team management, diversity, equity and inclusion, and collaborative learning. These include Emplay, Gapsquare, Humanly, Mentor Spaces, and The Mom Project.

Tom Symonds, Immerse CEO comments: “We are delighted to be furthering our relationship SAP through this exciting new programme. With the events of the last year pushing employee experience to the top of the corporate agenda, now is the ideal time to introduce more companies to the next generation of learning technology.”

The 12-week programme gives the selected startups access to curated mentorship from SAP executives, exposure to SAP technology and application programming interfaces (APIs), and opportunities to collaborate with SAP customers. The programme will culminate at the SAP.iO Cohort Demo Day in July 2021.
