Eric Pulier is a prolific and accomplished author, technology expert, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. He is best known for his ground breaking work in the realm of helping with healthcare and education technology for illnesses, especially with children. He has worked on a number of projects that ended up being enterprise solutions for the government or charitable organizations.
Pulier is a member of the Clinton Global Initiative, and he founded Desktone, Enterprise Professional, and MediaPlatform. His companies (he’s founded 15) have almost all received venture-backed funding from some of the largest firms on the planet. He was actually chosen to come to Washington D.C. to showcase his platform for helping children with MS. The platform was designed in concert with Steven Spielberg as the first private social networking setup. It allowed children in hospital beds, who couldn’t move due to their conditions, to communicate with one another. Typically, this kind of communication is impossible to do, but thanks to the innovative solutions of Pulier and his team, they made it a reality. With online communication involving children, safety is usually a concern, but they designed specific chat rooms and blog posts so they could communicate directly and safely, improving the quality of their lives.
Pulier graduated magna cum laude from Harvard and was also a writer for the student newspaper, the Harvard Crimson, while he attended there. Soon after leaving school is when he first started his company called Digital Evolution in Los Angeles. Now, he spends his time developing new ways to be philanthropic and help the community. For example, he is part of The Painted Turtle, which is a summer camp for children with illnesses in California. He also sits on the board of the Xprize foundation, which awards millions of dollars in prizes to companies and team all around world to solve real problems in healthcare and education for underdeveloped nations. Pulier also children of his own, although he clearly loves helping and touching the lives of children everywhere. The world truly needs more entrepreneurs and philanthropists like Pulier. The good news is he isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
