Vinod Gupta began is life in India, the now multi-millionaire has gone from a very humble beginning to being on top of the world. After leaving India he moved to the U.S. where he got his Master’s degree in agricultural engineering, and business, at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. From there Vinod would go onto creating a business from the scratch up, with only 100 dollars, and turning it into a brand worth millions.
Despite the tremendous success that Vinod Gupta has experience, he has not forgotten where he came from. This man is still involved in the community in a very big way. He has spent millions of dollars and has helped further the education of thousand by building schools in India, an area of the world that doesn’t have anywhere near the quality of education that other first world countries have. Vinod has not only been diligent in the educational community, but he has also been working tirelessly to support the struggles of women. Gupta donated $1 million to the development of the Ram Rati Gupta Polytechnic, this college has been key in developing women since its establishment in 2000, allowing women to earn college degrees in as little as 24 months. Vinod’s generosity extends even further than this, Gupta has also established the nationally ranking Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law, a monumental addition to the world of law and order and a leap forward for India in the educational race to excellence.
Vinod has done an incredible amount of work over the years to give back to the community that allowed him to become what he is today. Vinod faced many of the same challenges that young men and women in India still face today, the work that he is doing, by founding schools, by donating millions, by establishing scholarship funds, these are all things that will propel India into the future. Only time will tell what big move that Vinod will make next to help improve the lives of women and children far and wide, across both India and the whole world.
