NLC is the European Healthtech Venture Builder. Our mission is to advance health by making impactful medical technologies accessible for everyone. We achieve this by building startups following our unique NLC approach: entrepreneurship at scale. This allows us to scout thousands of inventions each year, select the most promising and turn these into impactful healthtech ventures. We are a team of 50 impact driven professionals with a fast growing portfolio of over 50 life changing ventures.
As our portfolio grows, so does the number of ventures that starts considering how their go-to-market approach should be structured. In this assignment, we expect you to take ownership of developing ‘highways to the market’ for our ventures. Your tasks would include:
- Creating a heatmap of go-to-market approaches being deployed by healthtec ventures across the world
- Mapping and ranking the landscape of partners for go-to-market for ventures (distributors, corporates, venture collectives, etc.)
- Deepening the collective understanding of what our 60+ ventures need in terms of support when it comes to market entry, including clustering our ventures as appropriate through needs- and/or the market lens
- Proposing one or multiple potential solutions for creating our highways to the market
- Support the implementation of these solutions, for example, by supporting the closing of framework contracts with key distributors
