Early December we again saw a first for NLC with an initial step into Slovenia. By invitation from the Dutch Embassy, Jack van Lint was keynote speaker at the 2018 Healthday in Ljubljana. This provided an excellent opportunity to explain in an new eco-system what NLC does to further med tech innovation and how private funding plays a crucial role. The new fund NLC Capital certainly attracted attention and the conference provided a great venue to meet the local TTO and several start-ups. We hope to be invited back next year.
