If you spent any measure of time in Los Angeles pursuing a career in technology then you would no doubt run across the name Eric Pulier. Eric Pulier is currently most well known for his work with the XPrize Foundation which focuses on rewarding young entrepreneurs who choose to ply their craft toward making changes in the technological field. Pulier has done so much during his career that we decided to take the time to go over his start, how he got to where he is today, and what he is currently up to.
Eric Pulier was born in a small neighborhood in New Jersey. Pulier would grow up in New Jersey and fall immediately in love with technology. From a young age it was pretty clear that Pulier was fascinated with computers and head over heels with technology. This led Pulier to begin working with computers as a kid and learning the ins and outs of various programming languages. Before he would ever graduate high school Pulier would already have begun his own computer database company. Pulier had a passion and he was willing to chase it.
You can’t get to where you want in life without taking time to learn along the way. Pulier understood that you needed to find the best education possible and that led him to attend Harvard. At Harvard Pulier would become well known and well liked for his work with the Harvard Crimson School Paper. Pulier would touch on topics that would later on become a much bigger deal such as terrorism, both domestic and foreign, as well as various technological concepts. Pulier would end up graduating with the highest honors before deciding to head out to Los Angeles.
Becoming an Entrepreneur
There is only so much that you can do with your education if you aren’t willing to go out and do the legwork. Pulier wouldn’t waste any time after graduating from Harvard and he would head straight to Los Angeles in order to start pursuing his dreams. We know that Pulier got his start working in healthcare and education as he sought to develop ways to give both of those subjects to those suffering from poverty.
With early success at his back Pulier shifted gears in order to focus on his work as a venture capitalist. As a venture capitalist he uses his passion for technology and his eyes for reading people and uses them both to succeed in business. Pulier searches out people that are as passionate as he and as willing to work hard for their project. Pulier’s currently wrapped up in the mobile comms company, vAtomic System and that has been his latest success story.
