15 years of experience

Perpuls is a german based association of medium-sized consulting and investment companies with offices in Berlin and Frankfurt am Main. It emerged over 15 years ago from one of the large auditing and consulting companies.

From the beginning, our self-image was that we create sustainable economic and or organizational added value for clients through the concrete implementation of measures to be defined. This also includes the temporary assumption of positions of responsibility in the companies or with the sponsors of the social economy.

Our individual approach to business advisory – combined with a high level of integrity – is well perceived by our clients and lead to our reputation as a result driven consultancy.
