About PULSE:

Public-Private Partnerships
PULSE was launched in 2016 as a strategic component of Mass Digital Health and fueled through public-private partnerships across the country.  

PULSE accepts top digital health startups that have raised less than $5M in funding and have generated less than $5M in revenue.

The more involved a startup is in the PULSE program, the greater the impact. While we accept startups from around the world, we do require that at least one team representative engages in our program and works out of our office space for one week or five non-consecutive days per month. In addition, startups must attend at least three cohort happy hours, attend PULSE kick off and orientation, attend Breakfast of Champions, attend final judging, attend monthly goals and milestones check-ins,  and complete program surveys.
