Eric Pulier : Visionary and Philanthropist

Eric Pulier was raised in Teaneck, New Jersey. In fourth grade, he started programming computers and by high school, had founded one of his first companies. He started attending Harvard University in 1984, and graduated in 1988 with a BA. In 1991 he moved to Los Angeles, California where he founded PDT (People Doing Things), which focused on addressing issues in education, healthcare, and other industries through the use of technology. In 1994, he founded a company named Digital Evolution. Later, in 1998 Digital Evolution merged with US Interactive Inc. To this day, Eric Pulier still remains listed as a Board Member.

Perhaps one of the biggest highlights of his career was his lead in helping create Starbright World, a private social network for chronically ill children to talk and discuss their sicknesses, problems and concerns. The interaction with one another and knowing that they aren’t alone was seen as a remarkable support tool for them. There are many different other companies that he helped found, including Akana, Desktone, Media Platform and a few others.Over his career he also helped co author a book, Understanding Enterprise SOA, a well known book on service oriented architecture.

His philanthropy background includes donating to several non profit organizations, as well as sitting on the board of the X Prize foundation. The X Prize foundation holds competitions to solve some of humanities greatest challenges. One such competition, the “Qualcomm Tricorder X Prize”, aims to reward an individual or group capable of creating a Star Trek like tricorder medical device to help aid in the diagnoses and treatment of medical conditions.That current competition is moving toward naming a winner in 2017.

Pulier has led most of his life as a forward thinker and a visionary. His work goes above and beyond helping others and truly implementing intelligent design. The Philanthropy work he has done as well as donations are greatly appreciated by the communities he works with. He continues his work today as Founder of vAtomic Systems and CEO.
