In 1998, he founds NATEC Medical LLC in Boston (United-States). Lacking the funding necessary to kick off his project in France, he moves to the United-States where, for several years, he essentially develops catheters for interventional cardiology.
Spurred by his industry experience in the field of medical technology, he relocates his operations to Mauritius in 2000 along with ten employees. NATEC Medical Ltd has successfully transitioned from a start-up to an innovative and dynamic enterprise with more than 400 collaborators.
The enterprise is specialised in the manufacture of cutting-edge percutaneous interventional devices and minimally invasive medical technology. It conceives and manufactures angioplasty balloon catheters destined for interventional cardiology, interventional radiology, gastroenterology, and urology.
Vincent Lagarde is also the Director of several other companies: Xtruline (extrusion unit) Abiolabs (microbiology and DNA testing unit), Tobili Investments Ltd (real estate) and Umbrella C (business solutions provider).
Committed to offering optimal schooling conditions to his children in Tamarin, on the West Coast of Mauritius, he initiates an educational project – the launch of a kindergarten and primary school in 2003, Paul et Virginie, the 5th private school to adhere to the French educational program.
He is a member of the Club APM (Association for the Progress of Management) and of the CCIFM
