As the old saying goes, “facts are stranger than fiction.” This quote rings true to some degree. People who do great things for society never seem to get the credit they deserve. On the other hand, entertainers and professional athletes seem to get all of the credit while doing absolutely nothing for society. Have you ever heard of a guy named Eric Pulier? If you answered no then this very notion is absolutely true. Eric Pulier is a man of many talents. He’s known to be a philanthropist, a technologist, an investor and a speaker. The guy has a resume of successful that majority of the people in the world couldn’t match. He has attended two of the nation’s most prestigious colleges being MIT and Harvard University. The question is, why is this guy not a household name?
Fortunately, Pulier isn’t into being praised. This brilliant minded individual does a lot for society, but he doesn’t do this for attention. That’s a true winner and a true hero by any definition. This proud father of four has invested in the hundreds of millions of dollar range for start-up tech companies, and he’s raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charitable organizations. Some of his capital venture funds went to companies by the names of Trident Capital and Monitor Ventures. He’s founded numerous successful companies by the names of Akana Software, Desktone, US Interactive and Digital Evolution. Some of his technological ideas have helped chronically ill children as well as people who suffer from Multiple Sclerosis. Pulier’s hands are into politics as he has participated in healthcare exhibitions for former Vice President Al Gore. He has helped build the “Bridge To The 21st Century” campaign for President Bill Clinton’s second inauguration and more.
You won’t find another forward thinking kind of guy with this much clout. Eric Pulier has done is part for mankind, but who knows what else the future may hold.
