Overview: 
Hasso Plattner Ventures invests in fast-growing, information technology-driven companies in Europe and the USA on behalf of Prof. Dr. h.c. Hasso Plattner, co-founder and chairman of software giant SAP. The support we offer reaches beyond financial commitments. Our multifaceted work includes acting globally as a strategic partner for our information technology growth companies. In Germany, our commitment has taken also the form of a seed program for information technology startups coming out of the Hasso Plattner Institute. After retiring from the operative business of SAP in 2003, Hasso Plattner was appointed Chairman of the company’s Supervisory Board. He has devoted his time to the promotion of science, innovation and entrepreneurship ever since. To further these goals, Hasso Plattner founded Hasso Plattner Ventures on July 1st, 2005 in Potsdam, Germany. Hasso Plattner Ventures Africa launched as an affiliate in 2008, operating from Cape Town, South Africa. Hasso Plattner Ventures manages four funds. HP Ventures I started in 2005, focusing on early stage software companies in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. In 2008, HP Ventures II and HP Ventures Africa launched, looking for investment opportunities in startup- and expansion-stage companies across the USA, Europe, Israel and South Africa. As of 2015, HP Ventures III, a €150 million fund, focuses on fast-growing enterprise and infrastructure software companies mainly in Germany and the Silicon Valley.
