Vinod Gupta is a successful businessman based in Omaha. He was born in India but moved to the United States in pursuit of higher education. After completing his studies, he decided to make America his permanent home. However, he never forgot about his roots. India is a country that he genuinely loves and does everything possible to support it. Gupta graduated with an engineering degree from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. He was later employed by a mobile home making company, an opportunity that led his first business. While working with this company, he created a database company that provided business information from all over the country. In 1972, American Business Lists was formed and ever since, Vinod Gupta embarked on the work of growing database technology in the United States. He sold the company in 2010 for $680 million.
Vinod Gupta may be highly successful, but he has managed to keep touch with the needs of the people. He understands the problems that the less fortunate in the community face because one day he was just like them. He was born into a humble family and only succeeded because he showed academic prowess. As someone who has seen the full benefits of education first-hand, he is ready to help others also to record similar success. One of the things he is concerned about is the education of women. In India, the educational gap between genders is wide, which leaves many women with less likelihood of succeeding.
The main mission of Vinod Gupta is to bridge the gap for underprivileged communities. He has started with women education to whom he has granted opportunities to obtain good quality education. He has built a girl’s school in his village in India and provided all utilities needed to enhance smooth learning activities.
