Solving real world problems together!

Launch your solution together with MSD

This is a call to all Digital Health companies to become one of the three winners that will get up to $20,000 each to roll-out their solution with MSD support.


Local MSD teams have identified 7 health challenges that need your help. To participate first pick a challenge and show that your solution is the best idea to become a finalist. As a finalist, you will have the opportunity to improve your proposal in collaboration with the local MSD team that proposed the challenge.


Then, you will pitch together with the local MSD team in a Final event competing against the other challenges. Senior MSD executives will only award the 3 challenges that show the most outstanding value. 


Winners, who can be from anywhere in the world, will launch the solution in the piloting country. Successful outcomes will be shared within MSD at global level. 


Applications round is now closed
