Startup CEO – CO2 Monitoring Device for Anaesthesia/ICU

We are building a start-up in the field of capnography, i.e. the measurement of exhaled CO2 in anaesthetised patients.

Are you the driven entrepreneur who can build and lead this venture as the CEO?

The invention
Current capnography devices are complicated to set up and unreliable, leading to lag or false readings. This early-stage project, co-founded with a well-known global medical devices corporate partner, is developing a novel, streamline fibre-optic device that solves many of these problems.

The device is potentially cheaper, more reliable, less obtrusive, and simpler to set up. Better results will greatly improve patient outcomes, reduce ICU admissions, and significantly reduce costs associated with intra and post-operative complications.

As CEO you will be responsible for developing and executing the overall business strategy, actively supported by NLC – The Healthtech Venture Builder and partnering with the inventor and other strategic partners.

Responsibilities include:

  • Develop a comprehensive business plan and funding plan
  • Coordinate product development from animal studies into a clinical solution
  • Design and coordinate clinical trials
  • Engage relevant development and commercial partners
  • Discuss with regulatory authorities to gain clarity on requirements
  • Seek and secure dilutive funding supported by NLC’s Venture Finance Team
  • Anticipate market introduction according to market needs
  • Initiate a go-to-market and pricing strategy
  • Develop and lead the team

You are:

  • A highly motivated entrepreneur
  • Keen to make an impact on patients’ lives
  • Driven by a desire to achieve commercial success
  • Strongly networked and influential at all levels of seniority
  • An excellent communicator, negotiator, and presenter

Your track record includes:

  • CEO competencies and leadership track record
  • Existing relevant market knowledge
