Corporate Partnership Developer

Build ventures. Advance health.

NLC is the European Healthtech Venture Builder, founded in 2015 based on the realisation that many promising technologies do not reach the patient. Our mission is to advance health by making impactful health technologies accessible for everyone. This is achieved by building ventures following our unique NLC approach: entrepreneurship at scale. This allows us to find inventions and create and support dozens of new ventures each year. We founded over 50 healthtech ventures to date and this number will rapidly increase over the next years.
We invite you to embark on this entrepreneurial and impactful journey with us.
