Born in Teaneck, New Jersey, Eric Pulier began working for success in life since he was in fourth grade, when he started programming. After High School, he started attending Harvard in 1984, although that didn’t seem to be enough as he took some classes in MIT at the same time. He even wrote a column for the Harvard Crimson, which he also edited. Later, he graduated with great honors in 1988 with a major in English and American Literature.
After moving to Los Angeles, his career as an entrepreneur began. First, he founded People Doing Things, a company that works on health care, education, and other issues using technology. He also lead the creation of Starbright World, a social network where chronically ill children can share their experiences. But this isn’t close to be all his work; he has founded or co-founded several companies like US Interactive, Media Platform, Akana, Desktone or ServiceMesh. But although Eric is a very successful one, he is more than just an entrepreneur. His work as a philanthropist is just as impressive, investing in charitable organizations like Trident Capital, eCompanies and Monitor Ventures, as well as investing in early startups that soon managed to finance themselves.
Eric Pulier has come a long way as more than simply a successful entrepreneur or a charitable philanthropist. He is also the father of four. But, his career hasn’t come close to ending and neither are his actions for a better world. Even as a writer he has been successful, for example his article The Enterprise Industrial Complex, which was published in the Forbes magazine. With such people in the world, there is no telling what he or other entrepreneurs will do in coming years, but whatever happens, Eric has already made a name as well as an example of himself. The new entrepreneurs of this generation would be wise to see his example and know that there is no stopping a determined man.
