Some people just seem to get everything right as such is the case with Mr. Eric Pulier, a well-known Los Angeles-based entrepreneur, philanthropist and author. As a fourth-grader growing up in Teaneck, N. J., his entrepreneurial instincts were already in play as he began programming computers and later formed a database computer company while in high school.
His Educational Foundation
Amazing as this may seem, for Eric Pulier, this was only the beginning of a spiraling trajectory headed upwards. As an English and American literature major at Harvard in 1984, Mr. Pulier became an editor and columnist for The Harvard Crimson while taking further course studies MIT. A distinguished graduation followed as magna cum laude in 1988.
However, this was only the first step in many more to follow in the world of software development and other entrepreneurial launches.
As a recognized leader and innovator in government and enterprise technologies, his many achievements include the founding of People Doing Things (PDT). This venture addressed, among other things, health care and educational issues to which technological advances could be counted on to provide viable solutions.

As a popular public speaker and lecturer, he also bears the distinction of having been listed as one of 30 e-Visionaries by VAR Business. That being said, Eric also forms part of Bill Clinton’s Clinton Global Initiative and also serves as the Executive Director of the Enterprise Leadership Council.
His Philanthropic Initiatives
Matching his philanthropic inclinations with entrepreneurial expertise, Eric Pulier is also a contributor and donor to several non-profit organizations such as the X-Prize Foundation, The Painted Turtle, a camp for chronically ill children, and several other charitable organizations.
