The world of technology is largely dominated by entrepreneurs. If you relied only upon pop culture for your information then you likely think of these tech-focused entrepreneurs as self absorbed and ruthless. This is the furthest thing from the truth, however, as entrepreneurs can be some of the most giving people in the business. Case in point? Eric Pulier. Pulier came to Los Angeles in 1991 in order to chase his tech dream. Over the past two decades Pulier has found immeasurable success in a number of different ways. Through it all, Eric Pulier has been focused on helping out where he can and that has led to a gigantic philanthropic outreach
Pulier’s most notable jump into the philanthropic realm came by way of his work with the Painted Turtle. The Painted Turtle is a camp that focuses on giving children who suffer from chronic illness the chance to feel better and feel their age. Pulier has donated his time as well as generous amounts of cash in order to work with the organisation as the Vice President of Cloud Computing. Along this same line, Pulier has worked hand in hand with the Starbright World foundation. Starbright World is a social media setting where these same children can connect, meet, and find support from others who suffer from the same illnesses.
We’ve also seen Eric Pulier work with some huge names in order to focus on philanthropy. Pulier was brought in to work with President Clinton back in the ’90s in order to address cloud computing needs in communities that couldn’t afford the latest technology. Pulier also went on to help develop programs that helped to inform and educate people suffering from multiple sclerosis.
It’s clear that Pulier is so much more than just a man with a tech company or two in his back pocket. Pulier has worked hard in order to innovate within his field but he has also continued to push for equality and greater understanding for the most at-risk among us. Eric Pulier right now is focused on his work with vAtomic Systems as well as the XPrize Foundation.
