He has built up an impressive amount of businesses, both large and small, but he has an even greater list of charities and other philanthropic work under his belt that makes his truly stand out.

Eric’s business ventures are impressive, to say the least, and many of them are well suited to today’s online society. He has such companies as Digital Evolution, US Interactive, Akana, Deskstone, and Media Platform on his resume as either a founder or a co-founder. But he doesn’t just start businesses, he helps them as well. He has invested in many companies, such as Trident Capital, various eBusinesses, and more.

These businesses and more might have gotten Eric his wealth, but that does not show how he spends it. And Eric Pulier has used his money to help fund many a charitable organization. He created educational software for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, and is a major donator to US Doctors for Africa. He doesn’t just donate to medical charities though.
