MEMBER NEWS: Ferrer4Future is a new collaboration program between star-ups and Ferrer in Digital Health

30 September 2019

Ferrer is a global medium-sized pharmaceutical company headquartered out of Barcelona with a presence in over 110 countries.

From the new department of Digital Health, we launch Ferrer 4 Future, a collaborative initiative between start-up and corporate to leverage digital health as a means to build healthier and more sustainable societies.

Our vision is to enable more personalized, effective and responsive care to patients through a connected ecosystem facilitated by digital technologies. 

We understand that in order to generate and implement patient-driven solutions using digital technologies successfully and sustainably, we need to balance the knowledge and experience of pharma companies with the creativity and agility of start-ups. 

Ferrer 4 Future is all about that!

Through Ferrer 4 Future program, we will invite start-ups to respond to our exciting challenges: 

  • Enhance care for chronic patients (ie. Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension)
  • Improve patient engagement and adherence (ie. in the field of cardio-metabolism)
  • Reduce Chronic Pain.

The first batch of challenges will be launched on October 3rd and the application period remains open until the 20th of December 2019. Nevertheless, there will be an on-going screening of the applications in order to guarantee swift feedback.

If the solution proposed by the start-up is a “match” with Ferrer’s interests, we will either partner with the start-up upfront or enroll the start-up into our program, depending on the maturity of the solution proposed. 

The program we offer is not only bespoke but also personalized for each startup. The duration is flexible between 6 &18 months during which we guarantee access to Ferrer mentors, experts and to our internal resources to develop the solution further.

If you are an entrepreneur who is curious about our program visit us on and feel free to drop us a message through the web. We will be very happy to invite you over for a coffee or a Videocall to clear out any doubts you might have.
