Vinod Gupta did not start life on American soil. He was born in a small village in India on July 4th. His village did not have any amenities we would consider modern. No running water, television, cars, electricity, or roads. That did not stop Mr. Vinod Gupta from accomplishing his goal of a higher education and fulfilling his American Dream.
After finishing school in his village, Vinod Gupta went to IIT Kharagpur where he majored in agricultural engineering. While earning his degree, Vinod met Professor Bill Splinter who was visiting from the University of Nebraska Lincoln. Dr. Splinter urged Mr. Gupta to take his education further. With encouragement from his family, Vinod made his permanent home in Nebraska. He has graduated from the University of Nebraska Lincoln with a degree in Engineering and his Master’s degree in Business Administration. See This Page to learn more about Vinod Gupta.
Mr. Vinod Gupta stumbled upon an idea for his business while working for Commodore Corporation as a Research Market Analyst. Vinod was asked to study the performance of rival companies. Mr. Gupta’s response to this was to compile a comprehensive list that could be used as a quick reference guide. Since Vinod compiled this list in his free time, he owned the material and was able to offer it not only to his employer, but to the company’s competitors as well.
Thus his company, Business Research Services & American Business Lists (ABI) was born. Vinod’s company offers comprehensive lists and statistics of all company’s in a specific business. For example: If a auto dealer wanted a list of his competition and their statistics, he could purchase that list from ABI.
Mr. Gupta is proud of the business he has built, but has stated that he would not be so successful if it wasn’t for his education. Mr. Gupta has given back to the next generation of students in India by starting the Vinod Gupta School of Management for any student wishing to further their education.
