Who are we?

At NLC, we foster a culture of collaboration and shared purpose, guided by our core values Together, Open, Decisive, and Optimistic (TODO). We believe in valuing every team member's contributions equally and prioritise working together toward common goals, emphasising open communication and a proactive attitude towards hierarchy.

Who are we?

NLC Health Ventures is dedicated to advancing health, making it accessible for everyone. By using entrepreneurship at scale, our unique NLC approach allows us to find inventions, and create and support ventures that have the potential to reach the patient. We identify promising innovations at early TRL stages, pair them with entrepreneurial CEOs and empower them to drive their start-ups from incorporation to exit, emphasising the critical role of attracting investment along the way. With a proven track record of building 100+ ventures in just seven years, we are primed for accelerated growth and impact.
