The life of Vinod Gupta is an interesting one, to say the least. He was born in India and grew up in very poor conditions before he went on to join the military. Vinod made a change for himself and went off to college to make something better of himself. Inspired, Vinod Gupta moved to the United States with just over 50 dollars to his name and a plane ticket he had to get with money that he had borrowed.
Within a couple years after moving to America, Vinod earned a degree in engineering followed by his business administration degree a couple years later. With his newfound master’s in business, Gupta stepped into the corporate world for the first real time at Commodore Corporation, a maker of mobile homes.
Vinod Gupta had some insight into the corporation’s market.
Vinod found something that was missing from the market that Commodore Corporation and others needed. After compiling a complete list of competitors within Commodore’s market, Vinod sold the information to his own corporations and even other corporations after that. Vinod was able to make a great deal of money performing this service and he even expanded on it over the years.
Vinod Gupta was able to build himself a large corporation worth million through his hard work and talent for seeing what the market needs at any given time. Vinod Gupta is the Co-Founder and currently now sits as the Chairman of Everest Group LLC in Omaha, Nebraska. He was the founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Infogroup, a technology company and started the Vinod Gupta Charitable Foundation.
