About NLC

Discover NLC Health Ventures: on a mission to find, build, and scale the next generation of health innovations to transform the lives of patients worldwide.

Our mission & vision

Despite the incredible impact of modern healthcare on society, the reality is that 95% of medical innovations never make it to the patient. At NLC, we are dedicated to bridging the gap between groundbreaking scientific inventions and the market-ready solutions benefiting patients. That is why we are on a mission to find, build, and scale the next generation of those health innovations that transform the lives of patients worldwide.

Our strategy

By employing an entrepreneurial approach at scale, we dramatically increase the chance of maturing an idea to market. By building 25 ventures per year, and with over 100 ventures in our portfolio, we leverage shared learnings and resources across our portfolio. Our captive funds allow us to scale our ventures faster while reducing risk for investors. Due to our scale, we make it possible for retail and institutional investors to invest in the early stages of healthcare innovation. Together we bring science to life.

Meet our team

Our 80+ team of healthcare, finance and business professionals is dedicated to find, build and scale transformative health technologies.  Our team is supported by over 1,000 experts across the world and together, we bring science to life.



NLC was founded in 2015 with the mission of advancing health and bringing science to life by building health-technology ventures out of innovative ideas and inventions originating from universities, academic hospitals and corporates across Europe. These innovations can improve prevention, diagnosis, treatment and self-care, enhance workforce vitality or procedural efficiency, reduce the environmental footprint of the healthcare sector and more.

NLC’s Impact & ESG Policy outlines the theoretical framework we use to measure how NLC and its Portfolio Companies can make a positive impact while generating healthy financial returns, how we identify potential ESG risks and opportunities, how NLC’s impact-investment thesis is incorporated into our due-diligence and portfolio-management processes, and how we report all this to our investors.
