"As an entrepreneur with a technical background, there’s a long list of unknown unknown’s to deal with when starting a business. The BIA PULSE is designed to lift the cloud of business and leadership, and accelerate the start-up journey.

I was able to directly apply some of the lessons from PULSE to ongoing discussions with partners supporting Extracellular, and thanks to this BIA initiative I once again have an inspiring network of peers and experts willing to share their knowledge and time."
