MEET THE TEAM
advisors & venture
At the core of nina capital is a highly qualified team, which combines experience in the health, technology, digital, and investment industries, as well as tech transfer, product, management and entrepreneurship.
We like to work with outstanding individuals at all stages in their careers, from very senior executives to resourceful students in health tech and computer science, who contribute expertise on specific projects on a limited-time basis.
We are, especially, always happy to receive interest from students actively studying for their life sciences, medical, or technical degrees. Please read more about our internship programs, here.
Selected exceptional interns go on to become Nina Fellows, and continue to learn and engage with our firm after their internship ends. Fellows are our ambassadors into the world—engaged in a supporting role from discovering the best founders to representing Nina at international events to researching unmet needs and analyzing market trends. Fellows are also invited to the Nina Capital Annual Summit, an event reserved for members of Nina’s platform. Please read more about our Fellows, here.
INVESTMENT ADVISERS & VENTURE PARTNERS
Investment Advisers and Venture Partners are external collaborators with deep knowledge and expertise in the investment, healthcare, and technology industries. These outstanding professionals increase the capacities of our core team with their wide-ranging experience and networks. We are proud to work with these international leaders to best serve our limited partners and our founders.
Meet below some of these executives, entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers, and academics supporting us from California to Boston, from Cambridge to Milano, and beyond.
Checks are early, smart, and excellent value in signaling to Silicon Valley investors the things that are real and coming from Europe.
