Pfizer partners with Indiegogo to encourage health aging breakthroughs
With the platform’s variety of entrepreneurs and the company’s 400,000-member Get Old community, Pfizer expects new submissions and proposals for services and products to support healthy aging.
“Pfizer’s long history of being a leader in scientific discovery, coupled with Indiegogo’s expertise in helping entrepreneurs gain access to valuable resources, makes this partnership a natural fit,” Sally Susman, executive vice president of corporate affairs for Pfizer, said. “By challenging this community of innovators to come up with breakthrough ideas to help us live better, we’re hoping to not only discover cutting-edge projects that could potentially change the way we live, but also to raise more awareness about the importance of living healthy at every age.”
This is the first time that a pharmaceutical company has collaborated with Indiegogo.
“Every day, entrepreneurs of all ages are raising funds on Indiegogo for innovations that improve the way people live around the world,” Jerry Needel, head of Indiegogo’s Enterprise Crowdfunding service, which helps large companies validate and launch product concepts, said. “Through this partnership with Pfizer, we are excited to bring our campaigners the resources they need to bring their products to market and truly make an impact on our future.”
