You might have heard about successful companies like Desktone, Akana and ServiceMesh. All of these tech startups have one thing in common. They are all the product of Eric Pulier’s imagination. This fact has led people to consider Pulier to be one of the finest minds currently working in the tech industry. Launching a startup is not an easy thing to do for a number of reasons. Finding enough financing is usually one of the biggest problems for entrepreneurs who are interested in getting their own startup off the ground. There is also the tiny issue of coming up with a good idea for the startup. Eric Pulier has had many great ideas during his career. He seems to have no shortage of them.
One of the most fascinating things about Pulier is the fact that the startups he has created are very different from each other. He believes in trying to branch out into a number of different fields. He doesn’t want to keep launching startups that are too similar. This is because Eric believes that repeating yourself is a recipe for disaster in the startup world. He would much rather try his hand at getting involved in a wide variety of industries. He knows this will expose him to a much larger group of potential customers.
Pulier received his education from Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. It was there that he earned an English literature bachelor’s degree. He had initially thought about teaching this particular subject at the college level. He liked the idea of earning tenure and having his summers off. However, his desire to follow this career path did not last long. He soon became interested in the booming startup industry after spending some time with a few people who were in the process of designing their own startup. Pulier asked if he could help. He soon became an expert on startups.
The list of profitable startups that were the brainchild of Pulier is quite long. He has sold many of the startups he has created for a considerable amount of money. However, Eric has never let this go to his head.
