Business Development Internship

Want to experience innovation and entrepreneurship in practice?

NLC was founded on one simple observation: at least 95 percent of healthtech inventions never reach the patient, regardless of their relevance or brilliance. We decided to call this opportunity by bringing together the best tech, the best capital, and the best people to build life-changing ventures. Having founded over 40 ventures, we are exploring several ways to expand and are therefore looking for a Business Development intern, to boost this growth and help inventions all over Europe succeed on a global level.
