Start-up CEO – Biotech neuro-immunology treatment for psychiatric disorders

We are building a start-up that is developing a treatment for mental health conditions by modulating an immunological protein.

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

The invention
We currently seek a CEO for a start-up in the field of neuro-immunology. The start-up is going to use antibodies or small molecules to neutralize a protein that is implicated in illnesses such as ADHD, OCD and anxiety.

Current pharmacological treatments lack specificity and effectiveness. This new targeted approach promises to revolutionise the field by creating a whole new class of therapeutics.

This early-stage project shows encouraging results in small mammal studies, both as a diagnostic indicator of disease severity and in therapeutic response.

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 drug discovery & development 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 (non-)dilutive funding supported by NLC’s Venture Finance Team
  • 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
  • Strong networks with suppliers, partners and KOLs
