When was PULS founded?
23 February, 2017
PULS was founded on February 1, 2002, in Helsingborg, Sweden, by a number of people with backgrounds in the pharmaceutical industry and research. The company became operative in the fall of 2003.
The founders had discovered that many commercially interesting projects never leave the academy due to a lack of resources and proficiency in product and business development. They also had discerned that the pharma industry’s need to license new projects and products would increase. Thus, PULS was started as a bridge between academia and industry. The first portfolio company, LIDDS AB, started in the fall of 2003 followed by DuoCort AB in the spring of 2004.
