We’re seasoned company-builders—skilled at navigating evolving macroeconomic environments while offering deep domain expertise across healthcare and technology.
When building a category-defining company, we know that advice alone doesn’t cut it. That’s why we roll up our sleeves and get to work, solving hard problems alongside our founders.
NEA was founded with the goal of supporting entrepreneurs not only over the lifetime of their company but over the lifetime of their entrepreneurial journey. We are investing in your company, yes, but we are also investing in you - today, and for what comes next.
