African Satellite Programs

We at Merck aim to create real change in the world and believe partnering with high potential international startups will help us to achieve this. The African countries of Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa offer promising innovation environments that we hope to tap into. We are proud to host a number of entrepreneurial events such as Hackathons and pitch days in Nairobi, Lagos, and Cape Town. These satellite engagements will not only enable us to foster our network in the African founders' scene, but also help us to scout cutting-edge startups for our Accelerator program.
