The Serial Success of Eric Pulier
To say that Eric Puller is highly accomplished would be an understatement. A graduate of Harvard, he went on to start or help start over 15 successful technology companies. In fact, his visionary talents were even noticed by the White House in the late 90’s, where he was part of setting up an exhibition showing where technology, specifically in the IT side of things, was headed. Apart from business, Eric is also highly active in the philanthropic side of things. Today he is one of the most respected CEO’s in the technology and software industry. He travels frequently to give talks and lectures and also has published books related to Information Technology.
His interest and ability to write started way back during his college years, when he contributed articles written with great insight, to the college magazine named the Harvard Crimson. He had a knack for writing articles peppered with humor. After graduating with a degree in English Literature, he moved out west to Los Angeles. Once settled there, he started a company named People Doing Things, which focused on giving tech solutions for the education and health care sector. A few years later he founded Digital Evolution, and interactive agency, which went on to merge with US Interactive LLC.
Despite his success in setting up business venture after another, he has also been successful in helping others, especially those who are economically disadvantaged. Not only that, he has helped physically disadvantaged children get better access to technology so that they don’t find themselves on the wrong side of the digital divide. He succeeded in putting together a multimedia education platform for children with Multiple Sclerosis.
In fact, he was one of the main people behind a private social media network named Starbright World, where children with disabilities can network with others, privately. He continues to live in the Los Angeles area with his wife and four children.
