Our Investment Philosophy
Deploy Smart Capital Focused on Value Creation, Syndication and Global Exit.
The UK develops some of the most advanced and innovative technologies in the world, especially in cutting-edge sectors such as life sciences, Al and robotics. However, many of these technologies fail to demonstrate their true commercial potential due to a scarcity of capital, experience, and resources during early commercialisation stages.
We believe that significant value can be created by investing at this stage, if the appropriate expertise, resources and network can be deployed to nurture the SME through to commercial success.
Guided by a highly experienced investment committee and leading scientific advisory board, NCL have deployed over $55M into the health sector, as a lead investor, over the last 3 years.
We believe that early-stage, high potential SMEs will benefit immensely from a physical cluster of like-minded entrepreneurs and organisations.
Our premier life science cluster is Discovery Park, the ex-Pfizer R&D site that has attracted over a hundred high-potential SMEs. The Park has not only premium office facilities and comprehensive service providers on site, but also cutting-edge laboratory facilities that are normally hard to access for small companies. These facilities are always open to our investee companies when needed, with room to scale up as the companies grow.
Our team spans three generations and is vastly experienced in venture investment, fund structuring, entrepreneurship and business management and is supported by an expert Scientific Advisory Board.
