PULSE is an association created in 2006 whose mission is to support and promote entrepreneurship as a lever for inclusive and sustainable development. Our moto: everyone can become an actor of change, as long as they have the means.

Each year, PULSE supports more than 550 project leaders in the launch or sustainability of their activity.
