Almirall, S.A. (ALM), a leading skin-health focused global pharmaceutical company, and Plug and Play, a leading health tech accelerator and innovation platform, announced a partnership today to boost digital innovation in dermatology. Through this collaboration, Almirall will enter into the Plug and Play Health program and gain access to the largest health innovation ecosystem globally, including stakeholders and startups. This collaboration will reinforce the reach of the Digital Garden powered by Almirall, a dermatology digital health startup innovation platform, increasing access to the dynamic resources of its stakeholders and resources in Silicon Valley, in addition to Plug and Play events. The Digital Garden, based in the Barcelona Health Hub, has selected 5 startups that will participate in a 9-month program focused on developing innovative technology-based services and solutions to accelerate their go-to-market plans and to tackle some of the biggest dermatological challenges of today and in the future.According to Francesca Wuttke, Chief Digital Officer of Almirall: “the partnership with Plug and Play´s Health Program opens a door for Almirall to connect with a wider range of dermatological innovation start-ups all over the world, which will boost our Digital Garden and, at the same time, will allow Almirall to contribute to the digital evolution of this ecosystem, by offering patient centric services and solutions that combine technology and medicine to empower patients and providers.”Plug and Play’s Health program connects forward-thinking corporations and investors with startups in the health industry around topics such as digital health, nutrition, patient engagement, and improved outcomes. Each year, Plug and Play Health accelerates hundreds of startups in their Health-focused hubs in Silicon Valley, Cleveland, Singapore, Shanghai and Kyoto. These young companies are then connected with sponsoring organizations like Almirall for business development and investment opportunities.”We are excited to welcome Almirall as the first dermatology-focused partner in our Health Program along with leading corporations such as Roche, Novartis, Cleveland Clinic, Boehringer Ingelheim, Sanofi, and Amgen. We look forward to supporting the Digital Garden activities in Barcelona as well as providing access to our global innovation ecosystem for Almirall and their program’s start-ups”, says Julia Belaya, Global Head of Business Development of Plug and Play Health.
