Connecting active investors and curated health and nutrition companies.

We facilitate and foster curated deal flow with a combination of events, unique databases, and year-round networking.

Our community includes:

Early stage and high-growth presenting companies representing all facets of the industry, including ingredient technologies, natural, organic and functional foods, foodtech, the microbiome, supplements, personal care and related technology solutions

Active health and nutrition focused investors (angel investors, family offices, venture capital, private equity, corporate investors, debt providers and others)

Selection Committee Members with industry expertise, many of whom are active angel investors

Engaged service provider sponsors

 

We work to elevate diverse founders along with dedicated content on diversity and inclusion at our events, providing a year-round community platform while fostering meaningful connections.

NCN's facilitation of Presenter + Investor Engagement consists of:

Selection Process - The Selection Committee is comprised of several angel investors who review and select companies to present at NCN events.

Presenting Company “Wish Lists” – in advance of each meeting, Presenters identify investors at the meeting who they are interested in meeting with which is handed out at the event.

NCN Event - Investors in attendance will have the opportunity to interact with presenters in person.

NCN Cornerstone (Annual Members) - NCN Cornerstone investors are dedicated participants in multiple investor meetings throughout the year. Even if they are unable to attend a specific meeting, they will still receive access to your presentation and business plan. And new Cornerstones are added regularly who will also have access to your materials even after you have presented.

Other Investors - The NCN team is actively engaged with investors in the industry and will introduce NCN alumni to these investors, whether or not they have attended an NCN Investor meeting previously. These "friends" of NCN form a vital network, and we continuously maintain an updated list of those actively involved.

Follow-Up Requests – The NCN team will facilitate investor introduction requests

NCN Alumni Benefits – Presenters can provide updates throughout the year, searchable by investors and strategic partners.

Our Events

All 2024 in-person events will have hybrid elements, giving our community the ability to access material related to the event via our digital platform.
Event formats may change given local health and safety guidelines.

The NCN Fall Investor Meeting of 2022 sparked lasting relationships for brands in the health and nutrition industry.
