Bert-Arjan Millenaar

NLC Health Ventures

Founder & CEO


Bert-Arjan Millenaar is the founder and CEO of NLC Health Ventures, Europe’s leading early-stage healthtech investor and the world's largest healthcare venture builder. He brings over eighteen years of experience in business development and growth strategies at KPN and Scarlet, and as a partner of DTG, advising management boards of companies such as Euronext, Toyota, eBay, and Amsterdam RAI on strategy. In 2015, Bert-Arjan identified the challenges that many inventors face in successfully commercializing their inventions in healthcare. Due to market complexities and fragmentation, 95% of healthtech inventions never reach patients. Motivated by a mission to bring science to life, Bert-Arjan founded NLC with a partner group experienced in healthcare industry entrepreneurship. With its growing team of more than 80 professionals, four captive investment funds, and over 120 ventures built across 16 countries, NLC is today a world-leading healthtech venture builder.
