Who We Are

Inpulse is a Brussels-based investment manager with special know-how on social investments and microfinance.

Strong connections with leading microfinance and social economy networks and multiple partnerships with successful stakeholders ensure a sound understanding of the market we invest in. Through our team based in two countries (Belgium and Poland), we currently support three active MIVs with a total aggregate investment capacity of EUR 56M.

Inpulse strives to bring positive changes in the life of final beneficiaries while ensuring competitive financial and social returns for both our clients and investors. This is Inpulse ADN.
