The hallmark of a successful entrepreneur lies in their ability to innovate and bring something new to the table. Entrepreneur work can be tough and many people end up flaming out of the process. We look to Eric Pulier, a Harvard graduate and tech juggernaut, in order to really appreciate what a successful career can look like. Eric Pulier may look like a fresh face in the industry but he is far from that. Pulier has been making the tech world work for him since the ’90s. Let’s take a look at what this tech entrepreneur has been up to over the years.
Pulier got his start in the tech world as a child. While still in middle school he was messing around and programming on computes. Keep in mind, this was the ’80s and computers weren’t as easy to access as they are today. By high school graduation Pulier was already running his own computer database company. Can you tell where his story is trending? Pulier went on to attend Harvard where he wrote for the school paper, the Harvard Crimson. Pulier graduated from school with a Bachelor of Arts and it wasn’t long before he was off to Los Angeles in order to get an edge on the competition.
Eric Pulier landed in L.A. in 1991 where he would go on to found ‘People Doing Things’ — a company that offered evolved technological ideas to the healthcare and education worlds. Pulier would springboard from this first company into his next effort: Digital Digital Evolution. From there on out the rest was basically history. Pulier has funded or founded 15 different companies in the technological field and there are more to come in his future. He’s raised hundreds of millions of dollars along the way, cementing himself as a true juggernaut in the tech world.
Perhaps Pulier’s most important work comes in the form of his philanthropy. Pulier has worked extensively to fund charities for children with chronic illness. He’s worked directly with guys like Stephen Spielberg and Norman Schwarzkopf Jr to develop Starbright World — a platform for children with chronic illnesses to connect with one another.
