On this occasion, SANOFI is launching 3 challenges, which are part of its commitment to support and encourage innovation on the African continent.

CHALLENGE 1

How to improve the awareness & diagnosis of patients suffering from diabetes?

CHALLENGE 2

How to improve the access to medicines in remote areas from supply chain management to alternative payment solutions?

CHALLENGE 3

health data?

Our goal is to create a healthy ecosystem in the service of the patient that includes all stakeholders in the sector: public authorities, private companies, startups, etc.

SANOFI now invites startups in Nigeria and Ghana to submit their solutions towards these challenges. This call for projects is free and open to all. Registration and submission of application can be done online by visiting the information and registration platform:

Application is open till February 15, 2019

A jury of professionals will select qualifying startups in February. Startups will be evaluated according to 5 criteria: concrete evidence of positive results in at least one African country, project maturity, the relevance of the solution, market potential and business model, skills, expertise and experience of the team and finally scientific evidence if applicable.

Selected start-ups will be invited to present their solutions at Afric@Tech in Paris on 16-18 May 2019 where they will defend their projects before a jury comprising of SANOFI representatives and industry professionals. They will be required to demonstrate their solutions to the VivaTech public.
