Carmine Circelli

Investment Associate

I am an Investment Associate responsible for progressing NVM’s investments from origination, throughout the transaction process and supporting early-stage companies as they grow. I have a First-class BSc honours degree in Pharmacology with Industrial Experience and a PhD in Cardiovascular Medicine. After University, I gained direct sales experience with Merck Millipore, and developed intellectual property commercialisation skills while working for the University of Cambridge.

I joined NVM from the Development Bank of Wales’ Technology Ventures team, where I invested in early-stage businesses. Highlights from my time in Wales were supporting one of my investments to develop a strategic partnership with PayPal, and being nominated for Insider Media’s Young Dealmaker of the Year for Wales.

I also have a special interest in the life science, medtech and software sectors. Working for NVM allows me to apply my passion for technology in a commercial setting.

Outside of the office I enjoy walking in the North West’s national parks. I try to play golf, but for me that’s walking with a different shaped bag!

There’s a lot to enjoy in my role, especially learning about a diverse range of early-stage companies. I find it exciting to work with exceptional management teams and contribute where I can to their business’s growth.”
