GROUPE SOS Pulse is engaged in the reinvention of the economy to place at its heart a commitment to social links and protection of the environment. We want to stimulate new forms of entrepreneurship, innovation, and/or cooperation, and strive to facilitate access to business creation resources for people who are geographically remote or are underrepresented today. → Why is it important to us ?
Common interest is not solely the responsibility of public authorities. Every day, large and small companies, entrepreneurs, associations, health mutuals, research laboratories, and foundations co-create and support projects and activities working for the common good. These myriad actors are involved in the emergence of a new type of entrepreneurship, perhaps less superficially impressive but ultimately more humane, more supportive, and more effective. Our goal is an ambitious but realistic, committed, and benevolent entrepreneurship model, the main objective of which is creating wealth that benefits everyone - including those who have historically been excluded. Never until now has there existed such an urgent need to respond to the challenges of the contemporary world with creativity and innovation, and never before have collaboration and mutual support been so crucial in buiding a more sustainable and inclusive world. This dynamic, however, conceals another reality: many people lack access to entrepreneurship, access to financing is prohibitively difficult for many, and the ecosystem remains complex. This is why we are engaging our network of incubators and experts to foster a new generation of entrepreneurs for social innovation.
