Merck and 5-HT Digital Hub intensify their partnership
The partnership between 5-HT and the Merck Group based in Darmstadt has already started in 2019 with the intention to foster digital innovation and to combine our efforts to boost entrepreneurial, innovative thinking and acting in the chemical and health sectors.
“We aim to innovate with the power of Data and Digital to create best-in-class solutions for customers and patients. Collaboration with innovation drivers from the startup community adds valuable synergies to this process. So does the - now intensified - cooperation with 5-HT as their matchmaking concept connects us to relevant startups focused on the chemical and pharmaceutical industry,” says Dr. Philipp Harbach, Global Head of Group Digital Innovation at Merck.
“This partnership with Merck Group looks to accelerate innovation in health and chemistry by bringing together the right partners, startups as well as corporate partners. We are very proud of the confidence Merck is showing us by intensifying our long-standing cooperation. With our partnership we can help tackle the big challenges in these industries,” explains Dr. Frank Funke, Managing Director of 5-HT Digital Hub.
Supporting and connecting startups, corporates and venture capitalists – this is the mission of our digital hub. Through this network, we aim to create "an open ecosystem for digital innovation" that allows various players to benefit from each other. Thanks to the now intensified partnership with Merck Group, we can strengthen this vision.
