NLC is the Healthtech Venture Builder. We bring together the best technology, the best people and best capital. To keep up with our international growth, the Best People team is looking to expand with a Recruitment & Executive Search professional with a passion for entrepreneurship & medical innovation.

What we do:
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.
We are headquartered in the Amsterdam Health Technology Centre, have a small office in Munich, remote employees in Austria & France and partners all over Europe. We’ve founded 25+ early stage healthcare ventures and have highly ambitious international growth plans.

Your main responsibility will be identifying and attracting Startup CEO’s for our new ventures. We believe entrepreneurship is a key factor to the success of early stage innovation so we partner with healthtech entrepreneurs and executives with entrepreneurial ambition, to essentially co-found the venture. This means your work directly influences the success of healthtech startups and the positive impact they make on patients lives. Apart from a very important role, this is also a very broad position.
