Grants4Apps (G4A) is a digital health crowdsourcing initiative. It provides financial support to start-ups for their software, hardware and technology projects which contribute to improve health outcomes or pharmaceutical processes. G4A consists of several different programs such as the G4A Accelerator, the G4A Dealmaker and globally spread co-working spaces. The G4A Accelerator offers dedicated office space for up to 5 digital health start-ups with concepts for innovative technology solutions to healthcare problems at the headquarters of the company’s pharmaceutical division in Berlin, and supports them in further advancing their products and business models. The Dealmaker is about facilitating partnerships and collaborations between Bayer AG and smaller innovative entities. With it, we want to give the opportunity to start-ups to boost their businesses by acquiring Bayer AG as a customer in the fields they need. In 2017, Bayer received more than 1,000 startup applications in total.
