Stories of genius are usually told with excessive, distracting flair and rarely mention the true source of an intelligence person’s success; their hard work. Eric Pulier may or may not consider himself a genius, but it is undeniable that his work ethic is unmatched. With over fifteen companies founded or co-founded by Pulier, we can begin to understand the makings of his financial success by going backwards in his history.
Eric Pulier was born in Teaneck, New Jersey and had already begun to learn program basics by the time he was ten years old. After studying for multiple years, Pulier began his database computer company before graduating high school. After graduating high school, he attended Harvard University where he graduated magna cum laude. In 1997, Pulier helped organize an event for the Presidential Technology Exhibition. The exhibition was named “The Bridge to the 21st Century,” and was designed to show the wonders of evolving technologies to members of the political field. One such marvel was the inclusion of a live feed to astronauts in space, which was unheard of at the time. Pulier was chosen by Presidential Inaugural Committee to execute the event, though organized much of the event himself, including sourcing funds for the event.
Since this time, Eric Pulier has founded or co-founded over fifteen companies such as, ServiceMesh, Desktone, Media Platform, Akana, Digital Evolution and more. It’s with a long history of notable accomplishments such as these that we can see that a mind that is labeled a genius, is actually just a mind with a profound work ethic.
