INDUSTRY EXPOSÉ (JULY 26, 2018)

Are you mourning Ivanka's decision to close her fashion line? *Shh* We aren’t either. Celebrate by reading our July 26th Industry Expose'.

The Pulse Industry Exposé is our bread and butter. It is this kind of knowledge sharing that inspired The Pulse in the first place. We have kept our eyes open and our ears to the ground to identify the status (whether they are cancelled, pre-solicitation, or awarded) of impactful contracts across the Federal Government. We have also identified past and upcoming industry conferences and events. This information is not exhaustive, but it is contextual. We are not only telling you the what - we strive to make connections that provide you with the why.
