It’s not often you hear of an entrepreneur who is also well-educated and a huge philanthropist. However, with accomplished and ethical Eric Pulier, you get a mix of the best of all those worlds. Pulier started from small beginnings, and worked his way to become a student at Harvard University before starting his professional career. He has always looked for ways to create positive value in the lives of others. After graduating from Harvard with two degrees, he turned his focus to helping develop healthcare and education solutions in the technology sector, especially for kids and others in need.
Having been a writer for the Harvard Crimson during his college years, Eric already knew the importance of bringing ideas to market and doing it on a deadline. He used this skillset when he moved to Los Angeles and got funding for a health care and technology firm that he later called Digital Digital Evolution. It was actually selected by the Presidential Inaugural Committee to be displayed in Washington D.C.
Since his fast start in his early years, Pulier’s brilliance has continued to show. He has started a number of businesses since then, always giving focus to helping in philanthropic ways too. He speaks at a number of events worldwide when he isn’t developing new technologies to help children. One such invention is a platform that digitally allows children with MS and Diabetes to speak to each other via a private network. This was in association with Stephen Spielberg. The children can watch informational material about their diseases and even chat with each other safely on a private forum.
When Eric Pulier isn’t hanging out with his four kids, he is putting his energies into his philanthropy and other innovations. For example, he sits on the board of the Xprize Foundation. This is a foundation that offers global competitions for young teams of technologists and entrepreneurs. They build solutions to the world’s most pressing problems such as health care and education. If they win, large cash prizes are available. He also sits on the board of Painted Turtle, which holds summer camps for kids with illnesses.
