When people get sick, many things can change for them - often a difficult path begins. More than 10,000 researchers and about 97,000 employees work at Pfizer to support people on this path. They develop, produce and market innovative drugs and vaccines as well as some of the world's best-known over-the-counter products. Headquartered in New York, Pfizer generated total revenues of $52.8 billion in fiscal 2016. In Germany, Pfizer currently employs around 2,500 people in three locations: Berlin, Freiburg and Karlsruhe.
The Pfizer Healthcare Hub Berlin is an important interface between Pfizer Germany and founders and start-ups in the healthcare sector. In close cooperation with Pfizer, start-up teams develop digital solutions that are a useful addition to therapies and products, for example in diagnostics or in the monitoring of health data. Pfizer supports startups individually and ranges from mentoring through the Pfizer network of experts to offices and sales partnerships. Pfizer evaluates partnerships with start-ups for possible future business options.
