For a period of three months, startups receive financial support of up to € 50,000. In addition, they benefit from intensive coaching from over 50,000 experts from the global Merck network. The founders also receive mentoring from Merck’s top management and get access and connections to internal resources, including knowledge, expertise and market access. The accelerator program will run from mid-January to April 2020. After the program, selected startups will have the opportunity to extend their stay either in the company’s innovation hub in China or in Darmstadt. Applications are now open until August 25, 2019.
