A Day In The Life: Deepa Gautam-Nigge

Every week we ask another person to have a look at their schedule. This week: Deepa Gautam-Nigge, heading the SAP Next-Gen Innovation Network in Munich

Deepa Gautam-Nigge holds a degree in economics from RTWH Aachen and started her career back in 2001 at a VC-backed university spin-off. With her further employment at SAP and Microsoft in various roles in innovation, go-to-market management as well as partner sales and business development, Deepa has 19+ years experience in the software industry. Deepa supports Munich-based venture capital firm Earlybird as a venture advisor and founded an SAP startup program initially dedicated to female tech entrepreneurs to ensure targeted access to top-notch mentoring, networks, and capital.

She also heads the Munich chapter of the network Global Digital Women.

Deepa and her nine-year-old daughter are always keen on exploring the beautiful lakes (to swim) and mountains (to ski) of their chosen hometown, Munich.
