Let’s take a step back and look at how the technology industry works. Typically someone comes along with an idea and then they look for investors. Investors keep an eye out for a rock solid idea and then they put their money to the pot and try to make it happen. Sounds simple, right? Even though it sounds simple, so many people end up flaming out during the process. Eric Pulier is not one of those people. The New Jersey born tech investor has turned into an industry titan and his work continues to take on renewed importance with more and more of his work going viral. Eric Pulier is definitely the template for how entrepreneurs should maneuver their career, and we’ll show why.
To start things off, in order to become a successful entrepreneur you have to be both ready and willing to put your passions to the test. Pulier was very clear, from a young age, just where his passions were resting. Pulier steadfastly believed in the powers of technology and the effectiveness of computing. In fact, by just the fourth grade Eric Pulier would be working on his own programming for computers that he could get his young hands on. Pulier transitioned from a tinkerer to a business creator before even graduating high school when he started his own computer database company. Pulier’s work was consistent from the start and only became more so after a trip to Harvard. Pulier would graduate Magna Cum Laude from Harvard and he would quickly jump to the West Coast.
By 1991 Eric Pulier was living in Los Angeles and focusing on developing his own career path. Pulier has since started or invested heavily into 15 different tech companies in his career, pushing around millions of dollars across these platforms. Pulier’s work has taken on more and more impressive degrees of efficiency as he’s gotten older and he continues to innovate today. Pulier is also a huge philanthropist and he has been a part of Painted Turtle and the Starbright World foundations for at least a decade, helping children with chronic illness find aid and comfort.
