April 21, 2021

G4A Turkey, which Bayer has been implementing globally, is about to start on 22 April 2021. During the last four years, 740 startups have applied, 89 of them were shortlisted, and 26 startups have been selected to participate in the program. This year, 197 startups applied to the program; 23 of them pitched their solutions to the jury, and seven startups were selected to this year’s batch.

All seven startups are in various stages; most of them have already launched their MVPs, early-stage or late-stage products. This year’s G4A Turkey program will be held online and focusing on consumer health, crop science, pharma, and radiology. The core aim is to cope with the main challenges that Bayer and Hackquarters can contribute to solutions. The wide range of challenges includes women’s health, environmental issues, telehealth solutions, food tech, and many more.

Each of the four vertical startups will get 60.000 TL grants, and all startups will join intense training and a 1-1 mentorship program from Hackquarters and Bayer mentors. Also, startups will have an opportunity to develop new products with the support of Bayer. 

Here are 7 selected startups
