This day has been a long time coming for us here at Pulse. The 2012 PEV0 is the culmination of thousands of hours of research, engineering design, machining and production (not to mention some good ol' blood, sweat and tears). We are proud to announce the official debut of the 2012 Pulse PEV0 on August 28th from 2:00-5:00 PM at the Student Activities Fair in the Petersen Event Center at the University of Pittsburgh. We'll be out there the whole time showing off the PEV0 and demonstrating the technology used to create this brand new vehicle. Come join us to learn about what makes the PEV0 simply the best vehicle for commuting around a busy city such as Pittsburgh. And don't forget, we're still taking applications for beta testing of the new PEV0 line through December of 2011.
We're still stretching our legs after our recent birth as a company, yet it's never too soon to start thinking about developing a professional corporate logo. We considered hiring a professional, experienced graphic design firm to do the work for us, but then we had a better idea: With Pittsburgh's many colleges and universities, our city is a hotbed of creative talent, so why not let local students design our logo?
As college students ourselves, we never take for granted the opportunity we have to get to "show our stuff" in such a professional arena, and we want to give that opportunity to as many other students in Pittsburgh as well. That's why we're planning on hosting the Pulse Motors Logo Design Contest! We plan on opening up the contest around the beginning of September to any college or university student in Pittsburgh. We're looking for a sleek, impressive company logo that encompasses the beauty and sophistication of our vehicles as well as the overall principles of green innovation and sustainability that we try to live by as a company.
If you or someone you know enjoys graphic design, keep checking back to see when we open the contest and maybe you could be the designer of the next great American automotive company (not to mention winning some pretty cool prizes)!
We are incredibly proud to announce that Pulse Motors Co-Founder and CEO Micah Toll is a finalist for Entrepreneur Magazine's contest to name the "College Entrepreneur of the Year". Micah was named one of five finalist out of thousands of entries. This prestigious title is right in line with the hard work and determination it has taken Micah and the rest of the Pulse team to make the dream of bringing sustainable, environmentally responsible transportation to Pittsburgh. The national exposure that this amazing opportunity would provide for Pulse is simply invaluable. The decision to name the 2011 College Entrepreneur of the Year now comes down to you! We hope that you can help Micah and the whole Pulse Motors team achieve this great opportunity for national exposure by voting for Micah for College Entrepreneur of the Year here! And if you believe strongly in what Pulse is trying to accomplish, then please help us get the word out by spreading this link around your social networking sites such as facebook or twitter, thanks! http://www.entrepreneur.com/e2011/vote/college/#457
