As an established enterprise technology entrepreneur, Eric Pulier has gained recognition for his brilliant IT solutions. Pulier was recognized by VAR Business as one of the world’s 30 e-Visionaries. Eric Pulier was born and raised in Teaneck, New Jersey and developed an interest in computers at an early age. For instance, he ran a database company during his high school years. He attended Harvard University where he undertook a course in English and American literature. He also took part-time classes at the MIT where he studied computer programming. At Harvard, he worked as a columnist and editor for The Harvard Crimson magazine.
Pulier founded several companies that continue to influence the modern public and private sectors of the United States. One of the companies was People Doing Things that took advantage of technology to develop solutions to social issues such as education and access to health. Based on his affection for chronically ill kids, he is a pioneer of Starbright World, a social networking platform. The platform has enabled kids with chronic medical conditions to communicate through web chats and blog posts. Other companies founded by him include Desktone (a virtual desktop company), SOA Software (for service-oriented software), and MediaPlatform (for rich media presentation).
Pulier is also a member of the Enterprise Leadership Council where he serves as the executive director and the Clinton Global Initiative. He was appointed to serve on these boards after his contribution to the 1997 Presidential Technology Exhibition titled “The Bridge to the 21st Century” turned out to be a huge success. Besides developing IT solutions, Pulier has also displayed his writing prowess through a book he co-authored, titled Understanding Enterprise SOA. His articles have featured in global magazines and newspapers.
Throughout his career, Pulier has always focused on developing IT solutions that address common social issues and contributing to charity. X-Prize, a charitable organization that organizes events to address social issues, appointed him as a board member of its innovation board. In addition, Pulier also donates to The Painted Turtle, a charitable organization that organizes camps for chronically ill kids.
