Jeff Bezos Plans to Sell $5 Billion in Amazon Shares. Should Investors Follow Suit?

  • Bezos plans to sell around $5 billion in Amazon stock through multiple sales.
  • Amazon's business has been doing incredibly well lately.
  • Motley Fool Issues Rare “All In” Buy Alert

NASDAQ: AMZN

Amazon Stock Quote

There is more than one reason to sell a stock.

Tracking what insiders in a company are doing with their shares is a very old investment strategy. They clearly have more information than the general public, so understanding what they're doing is key to successful investing.

Jeff Bezos, founder, former CEO, and executive chair on the board of directors, plans to sell a ton of Amazon ( AMZN -2.22% ) stock. Should investors panic and follow suit? Or is there something else going on here?

Bezos' sales are all part of a plan

Because Bezos is an insider, he must file with the SEC when he either buys or sells the stock or wants to make a plan to sell shares. That last part is key, as selling shares without notice could panic the public. If insiders disclose a plan to sell a chunk of stock well in advance, it shows it isn't a panic sale; it's just part of a larger financial plan.

Peter Lynch, one of the greatest investors of all time, was famous for saying there are many reasons to sell a stock, as an insider may be diversifying their investments, buying a house, or spending money. As a result, investors should be less concerned about insiders selling and more interested in if insiders are buying.

Now, there are caveats to this argument. Should every insider sell all their shares at once, then that's probably time to panic.

Bezos plans to sell 25 million shares, which will be worth around $5 billion at the current market price. While that may seem like a massive chunk of change for you and me, Bezos owned over 1 billion shares earlier this year when Amazon disclosed its insider ownership. Currently, that's worth around $220 billion, so the amount of shares he's selling is minimal.

So investors shouldn't see this as a panic sale, as it's really not a lot of shares in the grand scheme of things. After all, Amazon is truly excelling right now.

Amazon's business is booming

Amazon has been on fire lately, which is why the stock has risen nearly 30% in 2024 so far. There hasn't been a down segment, which has helped boost the stock.

Its largest division, North American commerce, saw sales rise 12% to $86.3 billion in Q1 and posted a 5.8% operating income margin -- a huge increase from last year's 1.2% margin. Moving to international, this segment saw sales increase 10% year over year and posted its first operating income in a few years.

But the star of the show is Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS is Amazon's cloud computing division and is emerging from a disappointing 2023. In 2023, its clients focused on optimizing spending, which meant less revenue for AWS.

While AWS's revenue didn't shrink because of the optimization trend, it hurt its growth rates. However, that trend is wrapped up, and new workloads are coming online, especially in the area of artificial intelligence (AI).

In Q1, AWS's sales rose 17% to $25 billion, and operating income totaled $9.4 billion. That's an impressive 38% operating margin and is a huge reason why Amazon's profits are as good as they are.

Amazon is truly excelling as a business right now and is producing record cash flows.

Unlike its previous high, which was influenced by pandemic demand, Amazon's current results are sustainable and are a top reason to invest in the company.

Although Bezos is currently selling stock, I think the average investor should be buying, as Amazon still has a long growth runway.

Netflix is ending basic $11.99 plan with no ads: Here's which subscription plans remain

Netflix is phasing out its lowest-priced ad-free subscription plan in the U.S., which could drive more viewers to its cheaper ad-supported plan .

The Los Gatos, California-headquartered streaming giant said Thursday in a letter to shareholders that it would be phasing out the basic ad-free plan – which had cost $11.99 monthly – in the U.S. and France. The company had previously dropped the basic plan in the U.K. and Canada.

The basic plan is not displayed as an option for U.S. subscribers on its Plan and Pricing page for U.S. customers. The company quit offering the basic plan for new subscribers in July 2023, but allowed basic plan customers to remain on the subscription so long as they didn't cancel or change plans.

Other Netflix plans include a $6.99 monthly option with ads, a $15.49 monthly standard HD video quality plan (no ads) and a $22.99 premium Ultra HD plan (no ads).

Netflix, which began offering a "standard with ads" tier in November 2022 , said the plan's "attractiveness" led to a 34% increase in ad-supported subscriptions from the prior quarter. The company reported a record 277.65 million subscribers across all tiers in the second quarter, up 16.5% year-over-year.

Netflix subscribers in the U.S. and in France who are currently on the Basic plan will have to choose a new plan, the company said in a statement to USA TODAY. Those members impacted will get an email starting today, the company said. 

Even without the basic, ad-free offering, Netflix represents "a very strong offering for our members," when you consider the $6.99 monthly ad-supported option, said co-CEO Greg Peters, during a videoconference about the company's second quarter performance Thursday .

"Essentially, we're providing them a better experience: two streams versus one. We've got higher definition. We got downloads. And, of course, all at a lower price," he said. "And for members who don't want that ads experience, they, of course, can choose our ad-free Standard or Premium plans."

The company reported its third consecutive quarter of double-digit revenue growth, with $9.56 billion in revenue in the second quarter of 2024, up 16.8% over the same quarter in 2023.

Netflix added more than 8 million subscribers in the second quarter, benefiting from the return of series such as "Bridgerton," and "Baby Reindeer" and the live event "The Roast of Tom Brady," as well as a password-sharing crackdown .

What Netflix plans are there?

  • Standard with ads ($6.99 monthly): Watch in Full HD on 2 supported devices at a time and download on 2 supported devices at a time
  • Standard plan ($15.49 monthly): Watch in Full HD and download videos on 2 supported devices at a time (option to add 1 extra member who doesn't live with you for $7.99 monthly).
  • Premium plan ($22.99 monthly): Watch in Ultra HD (4K) quality on 4 supported devices at a time and download on 6 supported devices simultaneously; Option to add up to 2 extra members who don't live with you for $7.99 monthly).

Netflix adds 8 million new subscribers

Total number of subscribers grew to more than 277.6 million, an increase of 16.5%, the company said. Netflix forecast lower subscriber additions in the current quarter (July-Sept.) than in the same period last year, when the streaming company added more than 8.7 million.

Back in April , the company announced it planned to stop reporting membership numbers in 2025.

In after-hours trading, Netflix shares initially dipped 2%.

Netflix will begin the launch of monthly video game releases including one based on "Emily in Paris," later this month. Coming later this year, a multiplayer game based on "Squid Game."

Here’s what to know about the outages.

A massive global technology outage on Friday took down airlines, medical services, TV broadcasts, banks and scores of other business and services around the world, a stunning example of the fragile dependence the global economy has on certain software and the cascading effect it can have when things go wrong.

The outage was attributed to CrowdStrike, a cybersecurity firm whose software is used by scores of industries around the world to protect against hackers and outside breaches. A software update issued by CrowdStrike appeared to be at the root of the problem, resulting in crashes of machines running the Microsoft Windows operating system.

“This is not a security incident or cyberattack,” said George Kurtz, the chief executive of CrowdStrike. “The issue has been identified, isolated and a fix has been deployed.”

Here’s how the spillover effects are being felt all over the world:

U.S. airlines were reporting major disruptions across the country. At least five U.S. airlines — Allegiant Air, American, Delta, Spirit and United — grounded all flights, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The issues were also being felt at airports around the world, including Hong Kong International Airport, Sydney Airport, Berlin Brandenburg Airport, Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam and Denver International Airport. At the Manchester Airport in Britain, there were long lines in the departures area as many machines at check-in counters were not working. Ryanair, one of the largest airlines in Europe, said it was experiencing disruption because of a third party IT outage that is “entirely out of our control.”

In the U.S., the outage appeared to be affecting emergency 911 lines in multiple states, the U.S. Emergency Alert System said on social media . It said people experiencing emergencies should call the number for their local police or fire department.

In Britain, the National Health Service was experiencing a loss of access to its computer systems across a number of hospitals and doctors offices.

Many television broadcasters also reported problems. In France, TF1 and Canal+, among the most watched, said in posts on X that it couldn’t go on air. “We’re all onstage, but there’s a gigantic breakdown in the control room” making it impossible to go live, Christophe Beaugrand-Guerrin, a TF1 presenter, wrote on X.

The global outage has led to long lines and delays at airports around the world.

Long lines formed at airports from Hong Kong to Amsterdam to Baltimore on Friday, as a global technology outage disrupted services, including check-in, boarding and baggage software, causing delays and frustration.

At Taiwan’s largest airport, Taoyuan International, and Hong Kong International Airport officials were manually checking in passengers, and in India, some handwritten boarding passes were issued.

About a quarter of the flights departing from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol were delayed, according to FlightAware , a flight tracking website.

Joe Lebrato, an executive who was on his way from Dubai to a family vacation in Michigan, said that shortly before his flight from Amsterdam to Detroit was to take off, passengers were told it would be delayed by at least an hour. He said they waited on the tarmac for three hours before the flight, operated by the Dutch carrier KLM, was canceled. He said that he was hoping to rebook a flight to Detroit departing on Saturday.

“The world is not going to end, but it’s a pain, definitely” Mr. Lebrato said. He said the passengers remained calm, understanding that the issue was out of the airline’s hands.

Louise Slyth, a consultant and freelance writer, said she had to wait on the tarmac for hours after landing in Edinburgh from Dublin. At the airport in Edinburgh, there were lines everywhere. “People were quite fractious,” Ms. Slyth said. “There seems to be very little knowledge of what’s going to happen next.”

In other European cities, including Zurich, Paris and Berlin, hundreds of flights were delayed or canceled. At Berlin’s Brandenburg Airport, Germany’s third busiest, flights were canceled for three hours, from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., before they started to resume. About 15 percent of flights departing from Brandenburg Airport had been canceled, according to FlightAware. At Manchester Airport in England, there were long lines in the departures area and only a few of a dozen or so check-in computers were working. Announcements broadcast over the public address system said “worldwide” outages had caused the delays.

The outage was expected to effect later flights around the world. At Narita International Airport in Japan, some passengers said they were disappointed and frustrated to receive automated texts from United Airlines that their flights were boarding, when instead they were delayed.

In South Korea, Jeju Air, which flies to dozens of destinations in the Asia-Pacific, said on its website that a number of services, including flight reservations were affected. Air Premia said its reservations and online check-in systems were affected and urged passengers with flights to San Francisco and Newark to arrive at Seoul’s Incheon airport as soon as possible.

Louise Slyth, a consultant and freelance writer, said she and other passengers travelling from Dublin had to wait on the tarmac for hours after landing in Edinburgh. Passengers were hungry and agitated, and flight attendants were unable to give any information about when passengers could deplane.

At the airport in Edinburgh, there were long lines everywhere. “People were quite fractious,” Ms. Slyth said. “There seems to be very little knowledge of what’s going to happen next.”

Though CrowdStrike said a few hours ago that it had identified the issue and deployed a fix, the ripple effects of the outage are likely to be ongoing, especially with air travel.

Flight delays and cancellations have a cascading effect because airport landing slots are limited and crews often work multiple trips in a day. When flights are cancelled, pilots and flight attendants may not be able to get to their next trip, requiring airlines to start assigning backup crews to those flights. Carriers routinely deal with such last-minute changes, but such disruptions can quickly overwhelm even the most prepared airlines.

There were about 110,000 commercial flights scheduled worldwide on Friday, about a quarter of which were set to depart from locations in the U.S., according to data from Cirium, an aviation analytics company.

Derrick Bryson Taylor

Travelers on the East Coast headed to airports on Friday were greeted with chaos and uncertainty. Airports from Boston to Miami were experiencing severe disruptions, according to FlightAware, a database that tracks flight information. As of about 7 a.m., there were more than 500 flight delays across the country.

McDonald’s in Japan temporarily closed some stores and limited operations at others on Friday, according to its site , because of malfunctions with its in-store cash registers. About 30 percent of its national outlets in Japan were suspended, according to Japanese news agencies, adding that the company was investigating the cause.

What is CrowdStrike?

Until Friday morning, many people had either not heard of — or were not thinking about — CrowdStrike. But as flights were canceled, broadcasters went off air, trains did not run and medical procedures were delayed around the world, its name quickly spread around the internet.

So, what is it?

CrowdStrike, which was founded in 2011, is a cloud-based cybersecurity platform whose software is used by scores of industries around the world to protect against hackers and outside breaches.

“Once CrowdStrike is installed, it actively scans for threats on your machine without having to manually run virus scans,” according to an explanation on the University of Denver’s website, which offers the platform to students and staff.

Cybersecurity software like CrowdStrike’s has broad privileges to run across a computer system, including into sensitive areas. That means when errors occur, the ripple effect can be significant.

CrowdStrike updates its security software automatically and silently. It seems that a flawed update on Friday morning, of its Falcon Sensor software, resulted in crashes of machines running Microsoft Windows operating system and caused the worldwide chaos.

In a posting on X, CrowdStrike’s chief executive, George Kurtz, confirmed that the outage was not “security incident or cyberattack.”

An updated fix of the software has been sent to computers, but Lukasz Olejnik, an independent cybersecurity researcher and consultant, said outages would probably persist because it was not clear how to fix computers that had already been affected.

It is not the first time CrowdStrike is in the news: Its analysts investigated the data breach of the Democratic National Convention in 2016 and determined that two groups of Russian operatives had breached a DNC server.

As New Yorkers prepared for their morning commutes on Friday, trains and buses remained running on time, transit agencies said. The only impact from the outage appeared to be train arrival announcements, station announcements and platform signs in certain subway stations and stops on the Long Island Railroad.

New Jersey Transit, which has struggled with a swath of heat-related delays and interruptions, said Friday that its service was unaffected by the outage.

At Narita International Airport, some passengers were frustrated to learn that texts they received from United Airlines that said their flight was boarding were automated and did not actually mean their flight was boarding. Earlier some United passengers were forced to deplane almost immediately after boarding due to the outage.

The Paris Olympics organizing committee said its IT operations were affected by the global outage, a week before the opening ceremony. “Paris 2024’s technical teams are fully mobilized to limit the impact and we have activated our contingency plans to ensure the continuation of our operations ,” the group said in a statement.

Andrew Das

Paris Olympics organizers said it had mostly concerned “the delivery of uniforms and accreditations” but stressed the impact had been “limited.” “Paris 2024’s ticketing systems have been unaffected,” the organizers said. Competitions at the Games begin on Wednesday, with soccer and rugby matches. The opening ceremony is Friday.

What caused such a widespread tech meltdown?

An outage has hit computers around the world, affecting airlines, hospitals, retailers and other businesses. So how did that happen?

At the heart of it, there have been two issues in quick succession involving widely used Microsoft systems, and some users may have been affected by both of them.

On Thursday, some Microsoft clients in the central United States, including some airlines , were affected by an outage on its cloud service system, Azure. Microsoft’s cloud service status page indicated the company had identified a preliminary cause.

Some users may still be unable to access certain Microsoft 365 apps and services, including Teams video conferencing. The company was aware of the issue “affecting a subset of customers,” a Microsoft representative said in a statement. “We acknowledge the impact this can have on customers, and we are working to restore services for those still experiencing disruptions as quickly as possible.”

Separately, on Friday many Windows devices experienced problems involving CrowdStrike, according to the Azure status page . “We’re aware of an issue affecting Windows devices due to an update from a third-party software platform,” according to the representative. “We anticipate a resolution is forthcoming.”

That outage was caused by a flawed security update by CrowdStrike. George Kurtz, the company’s chief executive, said in a statement that it was “actively working with customers impacted by a defect found in a single content update for Windows hosts.” He added: “This is not a security incident or cyberattack. The issue has been identified, isolated and a fix has been deployed.”

The issue appeared to be with an update to CrowdStrike software called Falcon Sensor, according to Lukasz Olejnik, an independent cybersecurity researcher and consultant. An updated fix of the software has been sent to computers, but Mr. Olejnik said outages would probably persist because it was not clear how to fix the huge numbers of computers that had already been affected.

A big part of the problem lies with the current suggested solution, which is to reboot each computer manually into safe mode, delete a specific file, and then restart the computer normally. Security experts said that while it is a relatively simple process, there is no way to automate it at scale.

“There is a workaround, but it requires manually tampering with Windows systems files in recovery mode,” Mr. Olejnik said. “Such practice is in general not advised ordinarily, as mistakes may cause other problems.”

That leaves affected organizations with a major quandary: how to raise the huge numbers of qualified professionals to go through and update the computers one by one. It could mean that even with the problem known and a patch sent, systems outages could persist for much of the day, if not longer, according to experts. Those with organized and well-staffed information technology teams could potentially fix it more quickly, said Mr. Olejnik.

Although it may seem counterintuitive that a single bad update could have such devastating consequences, a major problem was that the software being updated was doing critical cybersecurity tasks. CrowdStrike’s Falcon Sensor software, at the center of the outages, scans computers to look for viruses and other malicious attacks.

“One of the tricky parts of security software is it needs to have absolute privileges over your entire computer in order to do its job,” said Thomas Parenty, a cybersecurity consultant and former National Security Agency analyst.

“So if there’s something wrong with it, the consequences are vastly greater than if your spreadsheet doesn’t work.”

It is not clear whether the initial Microsoft Azure outage was coincidental or linked to the crashes caused by the CrowdStrike update, but security experts said it was possible. Most likely, if the two are related, it would be because CrowdStrike’s update affected computers responsible for running Azure, triggering its shutdown.

“If I were trying to think of a causal link between the two, it could be that the systems required for the connection to Azure were initially hit by the particular CrowdStrike problem, making the service not available,” said Mr. Parenty.

The outages, which shut down airlines, hospitals and emergency response services across the globe, indicate how delicate technology systems can be when they are so interdependent.

“This is a very, very uncomfortable illustration of the fragility of the world’s core internet infrastructure,” said Ciaran Martin, the former Head of Britain’s National Cyber Security Center who is now a professor at Oxford University’s Blavatnik School of Government.

It also underscores an uncomfortable reality that software companies face few liabilities for major outages and cybersecurity incidents. The economic and legal penalties for such massive outages can be so minimal that companies are not motivated to make more fundamental changes.

“Until software companies have to pay a price for faulty products, we will be no safer tomorrow than we are today,” he said.

Crowdstrike’s chief executive, George Kurtz, said the company was working with customers affected by the outage. “This is not a security incident or cyberattack,” he posted on X. “The issue has been identified, isolated and a fix has been deployed.”

“We refer customers to the support portal for the latest updates and will continue to provide complete and continuous updates on our website,” he added. “We further recommend organizations ensure they’re communicating with CrowdStrike representatives through official channels.”

Health services were experiencing difficulties in several countries.

Health-care systems across the globe were hobbled by the Microsoft outage. It caused chaos for patients checking in for appointments across Britain, forced the cancellation of some elective procedures in German hospitals and complicated some emergency response systems in the United States.

In Britain, the National Health Service was crippled throughout the morning on Friday, as a number of hospitals and doctors offices lost access to their computer systems. But health-care providers stressed that there was no impact on emergency services, or the ability to provide care.

The National Health Service in Britain largely relies on a common internal information technology system, so the problems were widespread. In a statement, the health service said the outage had affected its appointment and patient record systems. It still advised patients to attend appointments unless they heard otherwise.

“The N.H.S. has longstanding measures in place to manage the disruption, including using paper patient records and handwritten prescriptions, and the usual phone systems to contact your G.P.,” the health service said in a statement, referring to general practitioners, the first point of contact for most patients.

Still, some patients reported being turned away at doctor’s offices for non-urgent appointments.

“Entire clinical system is down 20 mins before hundreds of people call for an appointment that we can’t book,” Liam Barker, a London-based doctor, wrote in a social-media post .

The British government held an emergency response on Friday to assess the situation, according to Pat McFadden, a Cabinet minister, who said the government was working with industry experts on the issue.

At least one large medical care center in Germany, the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, said that it would cancel elective procedures on Friday.

Some emergency response teams were affected by the outage in Arizona, local media reported , with dispatchers able to take calls but in some cases writing information on paper to share with first responders. The Phoenix Police Department said on social media that a widespread outage was affecting its computerized 911 dispatch center.

In New York, the 911 system continued to function and emergency response was unaffected, a New York Police Department spokesman said.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority said that trains were operating “as intended,” but that the Microsoft outage had downed information predicting train arrivals and real-time location. Boarding information at Boston stations were also being impacted.

One big question people might be asking is how a single bad update — in fact what seems to be a single bad file — could have such sweeping and disastrous consequences? In part, it is because the faulty software is doing critical cybersecurity tasks.

“One of the tricky parts of security software is it needs to have absolute privileges over your entire computer in order to do its job,” said Thomas Parenty, a cybersecurity consultant and former National Security Agency analyst. “So if there’s something wrong with it, the consequences are vastly greater than if your spreadsheet doesn’t work.”

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority said in a post on X that it was delaying the 5 a.m. start of train service in the capital region because of the outage, and that buses may also be affected. Its website and call center are also down.

The University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, a large medical care center in Germany, said in a notice that it would cancel elective procedures on Friday at its two locations because of the Crowdstrike outage.

In Taiwan, some airlines at Taoyuan International Airport, the largest airport in the country, that use the Microsoft cloud system Navitaire have been affected, leading to disruptions in the departure check-in system, the airport said in a statement.

The affected airlines — including the AirAsia Group, Tigerair Taiwan, the Jetstar Group, Hong Kong Express, Jeju Air and Scoot — have switched to manual procedures for check-in. Delta Air Lines and United Airlines have temporarily suspended flights from the United States to Taiwan, the airport said.

Airports across the United States slowly descended into chaos Friday morning after a worldwide tech outage disrupted flights and stranded passengers.

More than 650 flights across the country were delayed and more than 100 others were canceled, according to FlightAware, a database that tracks flight information. Airports in the New York City and Chicago regions appeared to be hardest hit.

As the sun rose over the East Coast, at least five airlines — Allegiant Air, American, Delta, Spirit and United — had issued ground stops, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

“The F.A.A. is closely monitoring a technical issue impacting IT systems at U.S. airlines,” the agency said in a statement. “Several airlines have requested F.A.A. assistance with ground stops for their fleets until the issue is resolved.”

It was unclear how long the ground stops were expected to last, but it was causing some headaches for travelers.

American Airlines said in a statement on social media on Friday morning that it was aware of a tech issue with its vendor affecting multiple carriers. “American is working with the vendor to resolve the issue as quickly as possible,” the airline said.

Similarly, Delta said in a statement that it had “paused” flights and United Airlines warned customers that delays may linger throughout the day.

At Denver International Airport, large screens typically used to detail flight arrivals and departures were flashing blue error messages, leaving some passengers confused and uneasy about their travel plans.

Frank Tingley, a 42-year-old data analyst, was among thousands of travelers stranded at that airport.

“I’m not good, actually,” he said, adding that he first noticed an issue when airport staff had difficulties scanning tickets for his flight to Boston Logan International Airport.

Mr. Tingley said he was initially allowed to board the plane but after further complications and delays, passengers deplaned.

“The general mood is that people are finding a quiet corner and just trying to hunker down,” he said.

Videos of Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina showed extremely long lines with a handful of people describing the scene as a “zoo” and “madhouse.”

Passengers at other airports around the country, including some at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, quickly voiced their concerns on social media. Many posted videos of crowded terminals packed with disgruntled passengers.

On Thursday, a major outage in the Microsoft network briefly grounded Frontier Airlines . Other low-cost carriers like Allegiant Air and Sun Country Airlines were also affected.

Microsoft said the problem had affected multiple systems for customers in the central United States.

The global outage also affected businesses in Ukraine, a country already reeling from Russian attacks that have knocked out power plants and medical facilities. Sense Bank, one of Ukraine’s largest banks, and the mobile operator Vodafone reported problems, although these appeared to be quickly resolved. It is unclear whether the outage affected military communications.

Microsoft said in a statement, “We anticipate a resolution is forthcoming.” The company attributed the issue affecting Windows devices to “an update from a third-party software platform.”

New Zealand’s emergency management agency said that it was closely monitoring the affects of the outage. “It is likely that banking systems, communications and transport (particularly air travel) will experience disruption,” it said.

The Indian Information and Broadcasting minister, Ashwini Vaishnaw, said the ministry was in touch with Microsoft regarding the outage, adding that a technical advisory will be released by the country’s IT emergency response team.

Sustainable Impact Through Cross-Sector Partnership

Sustainable Impact Through Cross-Sector Partnership

With over 10 million social enterprises operating globally, generating US$2 trillion in revenue annually , and creating 200 million jobs, these businesses are effecting sustainable societal change by putting people and planet first.

With the world in a state of polycrisis – a term describing the simultaneous occurrence of several catastrophic events such as conflict, poverty, unemployment, and climate change – social enterprises are more critical than ever. These organizations, like Faces Up Uganda, Elli Cares, Key Farmers Cameroon, and Alexa Goodman Consulting, are a powerful force for change, and although it may seem like a recent trend, MovingWorlds reports that social enterprises have been around for over 600 years.

However, despite their growing impact, these organizations face a number of hurdles . Limited access to financing, lack of public awareness and recognition, lack of government support, inadequate legal or fiscal frameworks, and restricted access to procurement processes can all hinder their ability to thrive.

At SAP, we actively support social enterprises through our comprehensive corporate social responsibility strategy , which includes knowledge and skills transfer from employees and social procurement. Through this strategy, we facilitate pro bono consulting, mentorships, and coaching opportunities to help support social enterprises to scale their businesses, as well as connect them with new B2B markets like SAP Business Network. This approach can empower social enterprises to overcome business challenges, scale their impact, and achieve their ever-important missions.

Pro Bono Consulting: A Win-Win for Social Enterprises and SAP Employees

Building on more than a decade of experience executing pro bono consulting programs, SAP introduced a new way for more employees to share their expertise and experience with social enterprises through the Acceleration Collective initiative. The initiative is hosted on the TRANSFORM Support Hub, a global platform launched in partnership with MovingWorlds, Unilever, and the TRANSFORM program as a resource for social enterprises to access free, ongoing, bespoke support to scale their business.

Last year alone, 120 SAP employees leveraged their expertise on the platform, completing 51 projects and generating an in-kind contribution of $458,835. This initiative can not only offer growth for the social enterprises but can also foster SAP employees’ development through valuable experiential learning.

Employees Creating Change and Being Changed

SAP employees tap into skills from their day-to-day role and harness this expertise to create a solution to a real business challenge their social enterprise client is experiencing. Through this collaboration, employees contribute to the social enterprise’s mission while given the opportunity to flex and grow valuable leadership skills like cross-cultural collaboration, active listening, and a greater understanding of the challenges that small businesses face. To bring that to life, here are a few inspiring stories from employee participants of Acceleration Collective:

Collaborating with a Youth Art Education Organization on Its Strategic and Funding Plans

David Elliott, a technical communication specialist at SAP UK, collaborated with Faces Up Uganda , a youth development NGO supporting young people from vulnerable backgrounds. The organization uses arts and crafts education to help young people overcome psychosocial challenges and develop essential personal and professional skills.

Elliott reviewed the organization’s website and strategic plan, enhancing the communication of its vision, mission, and values, and wrote grant applications to help secure funding. His work included regular meetings with the organization’s founder, Ssekitto Kalule Emmanuel, who praised David for making “every word count” and inspiring the team.

“My experience with Faces Up revealed the potential of my skill set,” Elliott added. “Clarifying grammatical rules and style taught me about the impact of language in specific contexts, which has influenced my role at SAP. Seeing my work’s impact and receiving gratitude has motivated me to donate many hours to these projects.”

Partnering for Growing an App Supporting Independence for People Living with Dementia

A team of SAP employees from across the Asia, Pacific, and Japan (APJ) region – Binh Pham, senior value advisor; Sandra Chang, senior commercial business partner; and Summer Zeng, delivery manager, Product Engineering – worked alongside Elli Cares , a startup focused on supporting people with cognitive impairments. The team brainstormed with the founder, offering insights and recommendations on scaling and growing to take the business to the next level.

Pham found the experience fun, insightful, and humbling, as the team learned the challenges that startups like Elli Cares face and provided recommendations and solutions. “I was pleasantly surprised that my skill sets from my day-to-day job were transferrable and applicable to the case of this organization,” Pham said.

Enhancing the Funding Strategy for an Organization Empowering Rural Agricultural Communities

A Germany-based pro bono team – Fabio Westphal, solution advisor; Cansu Günay, enterprise customer success partner; Charlie Vu, specialist solution advisor; and Lilly Selzer, customer success partner – focused on strengthening Key Farmers Cameroon’s investor and donor outreach. This enterprise empowers rural communities through sustainable agriculture and vocational training. The SAP team refined the organization’s pitch deck and social media presence, enhancing its chances of securing funding. Westphal highlighted that he learned the importance of clear, trustful communication and concise storytelling in conveying complex ideas.

Scaling the Online Presence of a Consulting Firm Dedicated to Addressing Environmental Challenges with Creative Scientific Communication

Jaime Atilano, digital solution advisor, and Mallory Rioux, Customer Success, used their expertise in technology, brand building, and customer success to assist Alexa Goodman Consulting . Founded by scientist and environmental activist Alexa Goodman, the firm offers services in environmental education, science communication, professional development, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), and team building.

The SAP team optimized the organization’s website SEO to drive traffic and grow its online presence. “This experience was eye-opening. It’s one thing to learn about moving from empathy to action, but this opportunity allowed empathy to thrive,” Atilano shared. “I learned new skills, collaborated with a great team, and supported an entrepreneur working to save our oceans and advocate for LGBTQIA+ rights. It brought SAP Corporate Social Responsibility to life and confirmed that there is good in this world, and we can be part of it.”

Are You a New Pro Bono Consultant?

Two of our experts share their advice:

“Have confidence in your ability to provide value where you least expect it.” – David Elliott, technical communication specialist at SAP

“Embrace the uncomfortable. You won’t know everything, but you are there for a reason. Lean on your strengths and bridge gaps, even in small ways. Learning a new skill can seem daunting, but it’s a win-win: upskilling for you while supporting a social good endeavor. Your effort will make a difference for the client and the world.” – Jaime Atilano, digital solution advisor at SAP

Looking Ahead

The challenges we face in today’s world may be vast, but the potential for change that is created when social enterprises and professionals come together is even greater. As we move toward solutions, social enterprises have emerged as a springboard to a more just and sustainable future. Through collaboration and the power of collective action, we can further enable these changemakers to create innovative solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges, all while bolstering the skills and expanding the perspectives of our own employees.

Are you inspired to utilize your skills for good and join the pro bono consulting movement? SAP employees and alumni can find more information through the Acceleration Collective launch page , and professionals from other organizations as well as social enterprises can learn more through the TRANSFORM Support Hub .

Hemang Desai is global program director of the Pro Bono Consulting Portfolio for Corporate Social Responsibility at SAP.

Videotron lifts data caps on all Internet plans

December 9, 2020 - Press Release

No holiday gatherings

Montréal, December 9, 2020 – To help customers stay connected with loved ones during the holidays, Videotron is suspending data limits (overage charges) on all residential and business Internet plans for its customers from December 20, 2020 to January 3, 2021. Customers will be able to get together virtually without worrying about their data usage, as if they had an unlimited plan.

“Though the holidays won't be the same this year, the need to come together, unwind, share a laugh and see our loved ones hasn’t changed,” says Jean-François Pruneau, President and CEO of Videotron. “More than ever, Québec families need to stay connected and we're happy to be able to help them do it when it really counts.”

The announcement by Québec's flagship telecommunications provider is also intended to support the many seniors and people living alone for whom this could be a difficult holiday season.

The change will apply automatically. There is no need to contact Videotron to take advantage of it.
