Vinod Gupta is the reflection of what a true philanthropist should be like. Not only is he a self-made millionaire, he truly cares about bettering society and helping those in need. Mr. Gupta is based in Omaha, Nebraska, but was born in a small village in India. The successful entrepreneur did not have an easy start to life, but never gave up on his dreams. Now he is the Managing General Partner of Everest Group.
A lot of entrepreneurs forget their humble beginnings and lose track of giving back. Vinod Gupta not only remembers where he came from but has spent most of his career donating millions of dollars, energy, and effort to improve the lives of people all over the world. In his youth, the entrepreneur attended Indian Institutes of Technology. Vinod studied agricultural engineering there.
Once he finished his degree, Mr. Gupta set his sights on pursuing another degree in the United States. With only $58 dollars in his pocket, Vinod attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. He walked away with a Master of Business Administration degree in agricultural engineering.
Mr. Gupta built a multi-million-dollar company from the ground up. Now he uses his good fortune to help others. Vinod is a huge advocate of a higher education and encourages this desire to pursue one in others. Not only has donated school supplies and money to schools, he has built schools.
Vinod Gupta built the Ram Rati Gupta Polytechnic School in 2000 by pledging $1 million dollars. This school for women helps them achieve a post-graduate degree in under two years. This school is located in his hometown of Rampur Maniharan, where he grew up. School for girls and women is not been a priority in India, and Mr. Gupta is looking to change that.
