Becoming a successful entrepreneur can seem like the hardest thing int he world from the outside looking in, however this is an unfair way to approach the job. Entrepreneurs have to work their way up the industry just like any other career path, but the difference is that they get to choose how the path twists and turns. Eric Pulier is our focus today and his ascension up the tech ladder in Los Angeles has been nothing short of satisfying to watch. Pulier is most well known for his work with the XPrize Foundation as well as for vAtomic Systems. Pulier’s always been open about his methods and his process so we made sure to dig in.
As a venture capitalist, philanthropist, and entrepreneurs it can be very difficult to stay focused on the task ahead. That is why Pulier is known for being beholden to note taking and list keeping. Pulier starts every single day at work by jotting down all of the projects that he needs to take care of during that day’s activities. By keeping this list he can stay focused on what needs to be done. Being an entrepreneurs is all about being ready, able, and willing to hustle.
as far as his work with vAtomic Systems, he came to the idea for this business by monitoring market trends and looking for technology that could come in and disrupt the other big companies. He compares Uber’s rise to the top on the back of older technology as a prime example. vAtomic Systems, for those who don’t know, focuses on microtransactions within games. This is obviously a huge industry if you’ve spent even a modicum of time on the internet or on your mobile device playing games.
Pulier knows that you have to always keep your eyes to the future in order to stay competitive as an entrepreneur, particularly in the field of technology. Right now Eric Pulier has his eyes set on CRISPR-CAS9 technology in the world of genome editing. Pulier believes that genome editing is going to be one of the greatest advances in human technological history.
