Making it in the tech world takes a lot more than just the willingness to work hard. You have to be ready to vary your approach, find new ways to do old things, and deal with failure all at the same time. Eric Pulier may not be a household name quite yet but he has done more than enough work to cement himself as a legend in the tech industry. Eric Pulier’s wild and varied career has covered pretty much every base that you can think of. Let’s take a look at how Pulier re-invented the game in order to establish himself int he industry.
Eric Pulier was born in New Jersey where he was raised and went to school. By fourth grade Pulier was already programming computers. By the time he graduated high school Pulier was running his own computer database company. Needless to say, Eric Pulier knew at a young age what he wanted to do with his life. With that being said, we should also make it clear that Pulier was born and raised up in the ’80s — long before computers were commonplace and easy to operate. This shows just how dedicated Pulier was back then.
From New Jersey Puiler would go on to attend Harvard where he would graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of the Arts. Pulier wrote for the Harvard Crimson — the school paper — before graduating and moving to the West Coast. Pulier landed on his feet in Los Angeles right from the get go. He established his first company, ‘People Doing Things’, in order to cater to the medical and education fields with new technology. Pulier’s success here would eventually lead him to found or fund 15 different companies in his career.
Most impressive of all has been Pulier’s absolute dedication to philanthropy. Pulier worked hard to establish his biggest philanthropic endeavor: the Painted Turtle. The Painted Turtle is a special camp for children who suffer from chronic illness. His work with the Painted Turtle camp has directly helped bring happiness and health to children who otherwise have been forgotten and left to suffer.
