The most successful and effective value of Stream is the corporate philanthropy. Stream Energy has also come up with another charity foundation known as Stream Cares. This foundation was launched to formally present the philanthropic activities that they have been taking place for the past 12 years all over the United States on funding.
Besides offering funds, they also provide human resources. The Stream Company did show other organizations their mode of conducting charity work when Hurricane Harvey took place. Many of the firms take part in philanthropic activities. However, they fail to divide into different departments to cater for similar.
Philanthropy is essential in the society since it benefits both the less fortunate and the organizations carrying out the programs. By offering their assistance to the community, the people get to respect them and will always remain loyal to them. The people will still be ready to give back to the company. Philanthropy places an organization in a better position in time of crisis for they receive assistance from the people. Stream Energy is, therefore, having a better chance in the community.

Things didn’t quite go the way Eric Pulier planned when he hoped to make one of his companies the feature part of the Computer Sciences Corporation, an endeavor that became fraught with untrue stories and allegations. But despite that setback, Pulier found something even better when he saw the potential for mobile gaming to be turned into practical solutions at his new company, vAtomic Systems. Pulier has moved from SOA to cloud computing and now believes new apps with functions like Uber are going to take over the mainstream.

By high school he was already taking his programming into business and building database systems. He became a top student at Harvard where he studied literature and wrote for the Harvard Crimson. What made his time at Harvard unique was being the only literature major to take high level computer courses at MIT at the same time. He graduated with high honors from both schools.
Eric Pulier joined a group of students and activists in Los Angeles in 1991 when he formed People Doing Things which emerged into Digital Evolution. This was a company that took advantage of web design and video solutions to help companies market their niches online. Pulier became one of the nation’s top young entrepreneurs and was soon a favorite of then President Bill Clinton. Clinton selected Pulier to be the chairman of the Presidential Technology Exhibition, and at this event Pulier showed displays of future technology at various exhibits.
Eric Pulier’s philanthropy includes being a lead member of a team of engineers at Starbright World. This 1998 program connected patients at different children’s hospitals through a social media network aimed at helping them discuss their illnesses with others and make friends at other hospitals.
