Mervyn George (1996F) - 1 Billion Lives Program

Congratulations to Mervyn George (1996F) who has been invited as pitch-coach for the EMEA South chapter of 2019’s 1 Billion Lives program.

Congratulations to Mervyn George (1996F) who has been invited as pitch-coach for the EMEA South chapter of 2019’s 1 Billion Lives program.
"For those who don’t know, it’s SAP’s purpose-led initiative to fund social impact programs. The ideas and submissions are conceived of by staff (and recently opened to members of the broader SAP ecosystem). 2019’s teams have been brewing ideas, building prototypes and are now preparing to pitch to a panel that includes global executive board representation. Successful teams join the accelerator program under the SAP.iO venture studio and those who make it through the accelerator receive funding to launch.
It's great to see this taking place on South African soil this year. Stay tuned! Pitch day takes place at the end of August...."
