Principals &
Selection Committee

Nutrition Capital Network (NCN) is made up of a core group of founders and principals, augmented by the Selection Committee that helps to qualify dealflow and mentor presenting companies, as well as engage investors and corporate partners. The experience of NCN’s team ensures a measured perspective for presenting companies, and realistic prospects for their role in the nutrition and health & wellness industry.

Each meeting cycle applications are reviewed and companies rated by the committee, and candidates are often interviewed by a committee member. Upon selection a presenting company is assigned a mentor from this list to support the 4-page business plan and presentation documents.
