Entrepreneurship powers the world and offers many openings that young individuals can exploit. Many professionals who have had their enterprises grow to become successful had earlier learnt about the art from mentors and people whose influence to the world of business has remained unwavering. Eric Pulier, however, is a unique case as he is one individual who has always believed in working his way up the ladder to reach the hidden treasures and gifts of life. He is a technologist, entrepreneur and a philanthropist who has directed more interest in working with those suffering from chronic illnesses.
Passion for programming and education

However, his passion for the field stayed calm and grew later to become a discovery of his talent. He first developed a computer database company immediately after joining high school. The success of this project offered him additional motivation to further pursue his dream of becoming a successful technologist and entrepreneur. Eric Pulier pursued his course and when he graduated from Teaneck High school, he chose to join the Harvard University.
At the Harvard University, Eric Pulier was placed to study American Literature and English. His success in this course allowed him to become one of the columnists of The Harvard Crimson, a magazine that posted information about the campus’ life and other ideas that could help students advance their understanding of the world. His passion for computer programming could not be left behind and so he also joined the MIT College to pursue Computer Science. In 1988, he completed both courses and amazingly emerged with high honors.
To be part of the philanthropic world and to help solve humanities problems, Eric Pulier joined several philanthropic foundations. He contributes regularly to the X-Prize Foundation, where he also sits as a board member.
