Vinod Gupta: From India slums To American Wealth

October 23, 2018


Born in one of the worlds most impoverished countries, Vinod Gupta faced a life with no electricity, running water, transportation or readily available medicine. This, however, did not detour Gupta’s vision to not only help his family but also others in need. His parents where avid believers in education and sought out to keep Gupta in school. The work paid off as Vinod was able to not only finish primary school but attend and graduate from university with a degree in agriculture, soon after however, Vinod would join the Indian Air Force for three years as a flying officer and finally a squadron leader.


Gupta would soon move to America where he earned his bachelors in business administration from the University of Nebraska. Quickly Vinod Gupta would find employment with Commodore Corporation. One of his tasks, and in fact his start to success began when he was assigned to collect all data from every mobile home dealer in America. Gupta saw the inaccuracy of data that was available, therefore he decided to look through the yellow pages in order to get the best possible data.


An obstacle quickly rose as his company refused to pay for the time, however, they stated that if he could build a list on his own time, the company would happily pay for it. Vinod Gupta wasted no time in seeing the opportunity at hand. Shortly after, Gupta would finish his list sell it to every company that needed it. With this success, Gupta knew that companies were in need of large accurate data, in turn, he founded a Business Research Services, and well the rest is history.


Even with all this success, Vinod Gupta stuck to his promise to aid those less fortunes, Gupta would donate most of his wealth to build schools in India and the United States. Vinod Gupta has been a huge supporter of Women’s Education and started the Ram Rati Gupta Polytechnic for Women in Rampur Maniharan.
