Leaps by Bayer is aiming to conquer ten huge challenges facing humanity. Some people call them impossible. We call them “leaps.” We know that the odds of success are against us. Each leap starts with a very low probability of success. Each one could fundamentally change the world for the better.

Our initial list reflects Bayer’s ambition to tackle the biggest challenges in all those areas in which the company has gained a leadership position and the competencies to make a difference. In healthcare, Leaps by Bayer is focused on curing and preventing disease. In agriculture, we are committed to providing food on the vast scale needed to feed our growing population.

We are aware that we may fail in our attempts to make some of these leaps – but progress only happens when someone dares to begin. Imagine what could happen if we succeed with just one leap. If, as hoped, multiple leaps are achieved in the years to come, our courage will have paid off significantly.
