"I haven’t come across anything that is quite as open as Nurole is. I think it’s clever, very transparent and it accelerates the process in the way that traditional routes don’t… You don’t have visibility of a spectrum of opportunities that you can look at and judging what you’re most interested in. It’s innovative and refreshing."
