Eric Pulier is best known for being a man who helps out children and adults in need. Pulier himself came from humble beginnings but has now become one of the most successful and philanthropic people on the planet. Born in Teaneck, New Jersey, Eric Pulier worked hard to gain entry into Harvard University. Upon attending Harvard, Pulier quickly gained interest in helping the student body by communicating important subjects in a clear but humorous manor as a columnist on the Harvard Crimson team.
When Pulier graduated magna cum laude from Harvard, he was in high demand in the corporate world. But his charitable roots drew him to innovate and create technologies to serve markets that were desperately in need of change. He moved to Los Angeles and developed his own company from the ground up, which received venture capital, like many of his companies (he’s created 15) have. Digital Evolution focused on bringing technology solutions to the healthcare and education space, and in doing so he made an enterprise company that got the attention of Bill Clinton. The president, along with his Presidential Inaugural Committee, chose to bring Pulier to Washington D.C. in honor of his philanthropic and business achievements.
Pulier isn’t just brilliant, he also cares about helping kids. He teamed up with Steven Spielberg and created a technology platform that helps children with diabetes learn about the insides of their bodies and what certain dieseas and chronic conditions do to a person. He also pioneered a technology that allowed children with MS to communicate online in private chat rooms and blogs securely. This allowed them to have a sense of community and fraternity instead of feeling lonely.
The entrepreneur often travels around the world to speak at various conferences on technology and innovation. Recently, he became a member of the board of the Xprize Foundation, which is an important bridge between public and private sector funds and young entrepreneurs. Teams can compete from all around the world to solve problems facing humanity, such as space flight, water shortages, education, and more. It has given out millions of dollars in funding. Pulier also keeps busy volunteering at summer camps for ill children, such as The Painted Turtle.
