Harvard University has a long-lasting legacy of being an esteemed breeding ground for brilliant businessmen and businesswomen. Just take one look at the educational portion of the resumes belonging to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft creator Bill Gates as well as Viacom and CBS Corporation majority owner Sumner Redstone. Also in the ranks of this pool of entrepreneurial excellence is the Teaneck, New Jersey-born and Los Angeles-based Harvard grad Eric Pulier. But how exactly did Pulier pull himself up into such elite company?
Far from a late bloomer, Pulier wasted no time in executing his creative core by programming computers as a youngster in the fourth grade. Before his graduation from Teaneck High School, this prodigal son had already founded his own database computer company. Remaining on the East Coast before his big California relocation in 1991, Eric attended the world famous Ivy League standard Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This Boston metropolitan district is also home to another collegiate sanctuary, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.), which Pulier also took a few classes at.
Eric Pulier had a highly productive Harvard experience with his academic exploring including the areas of Computer Science, English & American Literature, and Visual and Environmental Studies. An early aptitude for penmanship was also pursued via the prestigious Harvard Crimson Weekly publication, where he also worked as an editor. Mr. Pulier’s writing skills were performed under the umbrella of a column he created called PulierLeg, publishing pieces between 1986-1988. Not only did Eric Pulier receive his BA degree from Harvard University in 1988, but also he graduated magna cum laude with great honor.
Along with a move to Los Angeles in 1991 came another fresh start for Eric Pulier – a new business venture. The technology firm People Doing Things worked to solve issues in the primary areas of health and education. Pulier’s tech-savvy instincts continued to flourish with his founding of Digital Evolution in 1994.
