With four former colleagues from IBM, Hopp cofounded giant German software company SAP. In 1995 he donated 70% of his SAP holdings to fund the nonprofit Dietmar Hopp Foundation, now one of Germany’s and Europe’s largest private foundations. Its focus is regional, in keeping with Hopp’s desire to return a share of his wealth to the Rhein-Neckar area where he grew up, supporting youth sports, cancer research and healing diseases in children in particular. To date, the foundation has disbursed more than $380 million. Hopp has an estimated net worth of $8.6 billion as of December 2017, according to Bloomberg.

Owns a luxury golf resort, Le Domaine de Terre Blanche, near Cannes, and a 5-star spa in Germany, Schlosshotel Buhlerhohe. Avid sportsman, Hopp sponsors an ice hockey club in Mannheim, a golf club near Walldorf and a soccer stadium in his hometown of Hoffheim.
