PULS’s involvement in the project development is based on a proven business model securing return on investment.
PULS shall create a healthy return on investment for its shareholders and together with innovators maximize the value of product ideas in life science, where PULS contributes a clear and commercial entrepreneurship, broad scientific competence and long-term financing.
We develop early life science projects into attractive business opportunities for the industry by offering long-term financing and world-class scientific and industrial expertise. The main objective is to maximize, clarify and realize the value of projects by providing capital, knowledge, cost-effective management and a successful exit.
We engage in life science projects with a well-defined medical need, solid scientific evidence and an opportunity for exclusivity on the market. Our main focus is pharmaceuticals, but we are also interested in e-health and drug-like med tech. PULS’s preference is to get involved as the first investor.
PULS consists of a highly competent, experienced and efficient operational management team and more than 40 partners and their network. Based on our know-how and experience, we secure the ideal infrastructure and mix of competences for each project for the duration of the development. We prefer to engage early on with innovators to ensure an optimal IP platform and a high-quality development process throughout the project.
Our business objective from the very start is to divest the project, typically in clinical phase, to a pharma company that finalizes the development work and brings the product to the market.
Our track record validates all aspects of our business model that serves both innovators and investors well.
