About us

Dedicated to help grow and enable positive disruption and progress in health and care globally.

Founded in 2013 in Berlin initially giving out grants to innovative healthcare apps (hence the name Grants4Apps), we fast forward to 2018 and beyond, where we are now a global program dedicated to help innovative health & care startups grow and enable positive disruption and progress within the digital health & care universe.

G4A is in over 35 countries and entails so much more than just apps. We developed new programs that open up the possibility for great minds to come in and collaborate with Bayer on redefining what is known as health and care with innovative technology.

In the last 3 years, not only have we brought our approach to many other countries, we’ve developed programs like our G4A Accelerator, programs to strike deals with leading innovators through our Dealmaker, and offered places to work and network. For us, every program and chapter unlocks its unique potential by focusing on different topics and markets.

What do our programs all have in common? It’s simple: striving to accelerate and support you in creating the best and most innovative solutions in health & care available today.

If you’re interested in joining our growing community, we have meetups across 42 cities worldwide! To us, meetups are one of the most important ingredients of G4A - it’s where we meet, discuss opportunities, share knowledge, and create amazing new experiences together.
