Eric Pulier is a juggernaut within the tech field. He has worked hard for the last twenty plus years in order to solidify himself as one of the foremost innovators within the tech field. Pulier is well known for his work at vAtomic Systems and he has done some great things with his foundation — the XPrize Foundation. Pulier’s journey to top of the line success was not one that happened over night. In fact, you have to go way back to the beginning to see where it all began for him.
Early Life & Education
As a child there was nothing that Eric Pulier enjoyed doing more than working with, around, and on computers. He was absolutely enamored by how they worked and what he could do with them. This led Pulier to deciding that he wanted to work with technology for his career and he wanted to do work that would make a big difference later on in people’s lives.
Pulier was born in New Jersey and that’s where he went to school. Eventually he graduated and decided to head to Harvard to seek out his higher education. At Harvard Pulier made a name for himself as a quick witted editor for the school paper, the Harvard Crimson. Pulier got a lot of attention at the Harvard Crimson for his focus on broader topics that would come into focus years later, like cyber security and domestic terrorism. Pulier would go on to graduate Magna Cum Laude.
Life in Los Angeles
In order to make a difference in the tech world, at least back in the ’90s, you had to be on the ground floor. Pulier went from Harvard to Los Angeles in 11993. He hit the ground running and would establish his first company, People Doing Things, right out of the gate. Pulier’s focus with this company was on bringing solutions to people who suffered from poverty in the fields of healthcare and education.
Eventually Pulier’s early success would lead him to establish the XPrize Foundation. The XPrize Foundation creates competitions for both individuals and larger groups in order to try and develop technology that can make a real, global difference. The XPrize Foundation is focused on huge issues like poverty, disease, government, and larger global issues. The XPrize Foundation is still one of the most long lasting projects that Pulier has established and it continues to serve as his flagship work.
