NLC logo

NLC,  the European  Healthtech Venture Builder, was founded in 2015 based on the observation that 95% of all healthtech inventions never reach the market regardless of their brilliance. Early stage inventions face numerous challenges in the (product) development, validation, certification and go-to-market phases. NLC’s mission is to bring healthtech to the patient and society by building ventures. 

With over 50 professionals NLC provides embedded entrepreneurship to healthtech IP sourced from either academic institutions or corporates located all over Europe. On an annual basis over 3,000 technologies are sourced of which c. 1,000 are actively assessed and over 20 new ventures are built. As a founding shareholder, NLC is actively involved in the development of each of its ventures and technologies. From support in the development of a business plan, the implementation of quality and regulatory systems, to executing fundraisings and setting up partnerships, NLC has a long-term commitment to bring these technologies to the market whilst ventures maintain their autonomy.   

With this approach NLC, together with Bonutti Technologies Inc., is passionate to bring the OsteoWeld technology to the market and impact the life of each individual patient that would benefit from this innovative technology.
