Vinod Gupta’s many exploits in the business world have been so amazing that they have become legendary. Without question he is one of the most influential businessmen of our generation. He has helped to make great strides in industry and in furthering technology. Despite his many accomplishments and massive amount of wealth he is down to earth and sees himself no better than the average individual.
Vinod Gupta’s story of success is such a wonderful roller coaster ride that it seems like fiction. He never let his failures keep him from achieving greatness. He serves as direct inspiration for those who wish to succeed despite their circumstances. He is a product of extreme poverty who found a way to exceed expectations and become one of the wealthiest individuals worldwide. He is constantly asked how he managed to achieves so much coming from so little.
Vinod Gupta encourages people to have hope and dreams and work hard to make their dreams a reality. Without hopes and dreams he may have just accepted things the way they are and never prospered. He knew education was the way to reach his goals and dove head first into his studies. He attended I.I.T., Kharagpur, India and graduated with a degree in agricultural engineering.
Even after receiving a degree in agricultural engineering he still yearned for more education. His quest for knowledge lead him to the U.S., where he enrolled in college in Nebraska. At the time the venture was a huge risk as he only owned the clothes on his back and less an $60 in borrowed money in his pocket. Despite his circumstances he received his master’s degree in business administration.
Having to borrow money may have been a blessing in disguise for Vinod as he is now a master at turning people’s borrowed money to capital. Vinod first tried his hand as entrepreneurship in the early 1970’s when he opened his first business, Business Research Services and American Business List. The superb businessman has come a long way since then and continue to have success.
